Who is Really the "Extraordinary Minister" of the Eucharist?
"I see that the high priests of the House of God have
become soft in their ways. They cater to their bodies and do not wish to
sacrifice and make penance. There will be no easy road to the Kingdom. They will
get down on their knees, and they will starve their worldly bodies until they
rid themselves of the demons within them.
"Unless you listen now to my words of caution, you will fall into the trap that is being set for you. The enemy is within the House of God. He will seek to remove your Vicar from among you, and when he does he will place a man of dark secrets upon the Seat of Peter!" - St. Thomas Aquinas, August 21, 1972
"Only consecrated hands shall give and bring My Son to the peoples of earth, legally ordained and given the Holy Spirit—the clergy chosen by the Father to bring His Son to you! Unclean hands shall not touch My Son’s Body! You must not allow My Son to be defiled any longer. No children shall carry My Son’s Body in the hands! Know, My child, that only one exception can be made: when a legally ordained priest is unable to reach the dying, he will send his deacon* to bring My Son to him. But only in severe trial and need, I say! Only to the dying. All others, My child, will be given the needed grace if they pray." - Our Lady, December 31, 1974
* Deacon: it is understood here in the traditional sense: a celibate man soon to be ordained a priest.
The above Messages from Our Lady were given to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, New York. Read more
Msgr. William Smith, renowned theologian and seminary professor, stated that a change in language often precedes a revolution, that a verbal revolution precedes a social revolution, or a theological / liturgical revolution.
Such a change in meaning occurred with the term "extraordinary minister" of the Eucharist.
The priest has always been the ordinary minister of the Eucharist. This is a tradition dating back to the Apostles, and taught by the Council of Trent. It is not a discipline, such as the Eucharistic fast law. The privilege and right to distribute Holy Communion is intimately bound to the sacrament of holy orders.
No laymen or women was ever the extraordinary minister of the Holy Eucharist, according to Catholic doctrine. The reason: lack of ordination, lack of holy orders (an impossibility to women).
Following are a few sources explaining the age-old doctrine, that a priest alone is the ordinary minister of the Eucharist. In cases of necessity (with permission), the transitional deacon (soon to be ordained a priest) was permitted to give Holy Communion to the dying. But the deacon was only the extraordinary minister.
Let us see what traditional Catholic theology books and other sources taught on this subject.
Sacramental theology book (1963)
"a) By ordination a deacon is the extraordinary minister of Holy Communion but only with permission of the local Ordinary or of the pastor granted by either for a serious reason, but this permission may be presumed in a case of need. Apart from necessity a deacon would not be justified in acting without permission. Examples of need are Viaticum for a sick person, the large number of communicants and the insufficiency of priests, etc. The required permission can be granted by the rector a church, seminary rector, religious superior. Even with priests present a deacon may transfer the Blessed Sacrament from one altar to another.
"b) The deacon in administering Holy Communion observes the ceremonies as prescribed for a priest. He wears the stole in the fashion of a deacon and unless a priest also distributes at the same time he gives his blessing with his hand at the end of the ceremony as prescribed. Unlike inferior clerics the deacon, although sinning gravely, does not incur an irregularity if he acts without permission." (Nicholas Halligan, O.P., The Administration of the Sacraments, copyright 1963 by the Society of St. Paul, p. 108. Imprimatur: Richard Cardinal Cushing, November 7, 1962)
Let this sink in.
The Church teaching in 1962-63 was that a transitional deacon would sin gravely (commit a mortal sin) if he distributed Holy Communion without permission. If this was merely a light matter, a penalty of mortal sin would not be attached.
So if even a transitional deacon would be guilty of serious sin (mortal sin) for giving Holy Communion without permission, what of all the laymen and lay women giving out Holy Communion today?
By what authority can anyone change a doctrine of the Church?
Moral theology book (1930)
"The minister of Communion--(a) Qualifications.-- The ordinary minister of Communion is the priest, the extraordinary minister a deacon." (Moral Theology: A Concise Course, "The Sacrament of the Eucharist," #2703, John A. McHugh, O.P. and Charles J. Callan, O.P., p. 661. Copyright 1930. Imprimatur: Patrick Cardinal Hayes, D.D., November 7, 1930)
1917 Code of Canon Law
Canon 845, par. 1. “The ordinary minister of holy communion is only the priest.”
Canon 845. par. 2. “The extraordinary minister of holy communion is the deacon, with permission of the local bishop or the parish priest, only to be granted for a serious reason, which may legitimately be presumed in a case of emergency.”
Summa Theologica (St. Thomas Aquinas)
Regarding transitional deacons distributing Holy Communion:
"The deacon, as being nigh to the priestly order, has a certain share in the latter's duties, so that he may dispense the blood; but not the body, except in case of necessity, at the bidding of a bishop or of a priest." (Summa Theologica, Part III, St. Thomas Aquinas, Question 82: The minister of this sacrament, Art. 3: "Does it belong to the priest alone to dispense this sacrament?", Reply Obj. 1)
Regarding laymen and women distributing Holy Communion:
"On the contrary, It is written (De Consecr., dist. 12): 'It has come to our knowledge that some priests deliver the Lord's body to a layman or to a woman to carry it to the sick: The synod therefore forbids such presumption to continue; and let the priest himself communicate the sick.'" (Summa Theologica, Part III, St. Thomas Aquinas, Question 82: The minister of this sacrament, Art. 3: "Does it belong to the priest alone to dispense this sacrament?", On the Contrary)
Council of Trent (1545-1563)
Only priests to administer Holy Communion:
"To omit nothing doctrinal on this Sacrament, we now come to speak of its minister, a point, however, on which scarcely anyone can be ignorant. It must be taught, then, that to priests alone has been given power to consecrate and administer to the faithful, the Holy Eucharist. That this has been the unvarying practice of the Church, that the faithful should receive the Sacrament from the priests, and that the officiating priests should communicate themselves, has been explained by the holy Council of Trent, which has also shown that this practice, as having proceeded from Apostolic tradition, is to be religiously retained, particularly as Christ the Lord has left us an illustrious example thereof, having consecrated His own most sacred body, and given it to the Apostles with His own hands.
The laity prohibited to touch the sacred vessels:
"To safeguard in every possible way the dignity of so august a Sacrament, not only is the power of its administration entrusted exclusively to priests, but the Church has also prohibited by law any but consecrated persons, unless some case of great necessity intervene, to dare handle or touch the sacred vessels, the linen, or other instruments necessary to its completion.
"Priests themselves and the rest of the faithful may hence understand how great should be the piety and holiness of those who approach to consecrate, administer or receive the Eucharist." (The Catechism of the Council of Trent, "The Minister of the Eucharist," Tan Books, pp. 253-254)
St. Francis of Assisi, (1215)
"We should visit churches often and show great respect for the clergy, not just for them personally, for they may be sinners, but because of their high office, for it is they who administer the most holy Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. They offer It in sacrifice at the altar, and it is they who receive It and administer It to others. We should realize, too, that no one can be saved except by the Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and the holy words of God, and it is the clergy who tell us his words and administer the Blessed Sacrament, and they alone have a right to do it, and no one else." (Letter to All the Faithful, 1215, St. Francis of Assisi)
Pope St. John Paul II
"To touch the sacred species, and to distribute them with their own hands, is a privilege of the ordained, one which indicates an active participation in the ministry of the Eucharist.” (Pope John Paul II, Apostolic Letter Dominicae Cenae, February 24, 1980)
When a non-priest touched the Ark of the Covenant
Everything in Holy Scripture is there for our benefit and enlightenment. In the Bible it is recorded that only the Levite priests were allowed to carry the Ark of the Covenant: “No one may carry the ark of God except the Levites, for the Lord chose them to carry the ark of the Lord and to minister to him forever” (1 Chronicles 15:2; 1 Paralipomenon 15:2 in Douay-Rheims Bible).
There is a dramatic event in 1 Chronicles, showing that God would only allow the priests to touch the "Holy of Holies," the Ark of the Convenant. When a non-Levite touched the Ark of the Covenant, he was struck dead:
“And when they came to the floor of Chidon, Oza put forth his hand, to hold up the ark: for the ox being wanton had made it lean a little on one side. And the Lord was angry with Oza, and struck him, because he had touched the ark; and he died there before the Lord” (1 Chronicles 13:9-10; 1 Paralipomenon 13:9-10 in Douay-Rheims Bible).
Do you really think it does not matter who touches and administers the true "Holy of Holies," Jesus Himself in the Holy Eucharist?
Doctrine cannot change
Dietrich von Hildebrand, called a 20th Century "Doctor of the Church" by Pope St. John Paul II, helps clarify a very necessary distinction: doctrine is either true or false; human law (which includes Church law, canon law) is either prudent or imprudent. Catholic doctrine is infallible true. Human law, however, is not infallible; canon law is not infallible.
Something is not true because canon law says so; canon law serves Divine law, the Commandments and Church doctrine, not the reverse. So if the new code of canon law (1983) changes the definition of the minister of the Eucharist, does the doctrine change? Of course not. Truth is truth. It does not change for any person on earth. Catholic doctrine is a rock that will endure and remain eternally unaltered, no many how many heretics and liberal Catholics dash themselves against this rock of truth.
We are certainly free to humbly pray for the reversal of some very imprudent, bad human laws in the 1983 code of canon law. And this author would add, deceptive laws that have sought to put new meaning on terms that for centuries have meant something entirely different.
As one holy priest told me, "This schizophrenic attitude in the Church has got to stop."
Our Lady of the Roses' theology is flawless. She explains simply and perfectly that the priest is the ordinary minister and the deacon the extraordinary minister, that we are to receive Holy Communion only from the hands of a priest. It is not Our Lady who is misleading her Catholic children. Rather, it is the many priests and bishops who are the heretics and false prophets, misleading their flocks with lies and half-truths.
"Pastors, no hands other than those consecrated by a
legally-ordained priest shall give the Host to others. Better that you
spend more time consummating your role as the representative of Christ
than joining the world. The extraordinary [Eucharistic] ministers have
become a farce! Women? Children? Whatever shall become of you? The rules
of discipline in the houses of My Son have already been given to you.
"Only legally-ordained representatives of My Son—they receive the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit deems that they shall bring the Host to the man and the woman recipient and the children!" - Our Lady, August 21, 1975
"My children, kneel before your God in the Eucharist. Do not stand like you stand in meeting halls, but kneel and give Him a just love and observance of honor." Our Lady, July 14,1979

Our Lady of the Roses' Awesome Bayside Prophecies...
These prophecies came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995:
"My Son is not pleased with the manner in which His Body and Blood is being given to all of the humans upon earth.
"Communion in the hand has not been, and will not be accepted by Heaven. This is a sacrilege in the eyes of the Eternal Father, and must not be continued, for you only add to your punishment when you continue on in the ways that have been found to be unpleasing to the Eternal Father." - Our Lady, June 30, 1984
MAN OF GOD
"A priest is a man of God, chosen solely from the world to be a representative of the Son of God.... As a man of God, he brings to you the Body and Blood of your Savior.
"I tell you, my brothers and sister, that none shall take in his or her hands the purified Body of your Savior! Only the consecrated fingers and hands of the representative of Christ the Lord shall give and bring this gift to mankind! - St. Theresa, October 2, 1975
THE LAST SUPPER
Veronica - I see a very large mural in the sky now. It's dark all about it. And I know it's a plaque; it's like a plaque up here in the sky, and it shows the twelve apostles during the Last Supper. I see great sadness in their faces because of the violation of the Host now. - September 7, 1977
"I ask you, My children--you ask Me many times in your prayers, shall you accept My Son's Body in your hands? I say no! And no again for reason!
"You cannot judge all those about you, My children, who have accepted this diabolical practice under the guise of leadership. No, My children, this was brought about to desecrate My Son, to take from Him the truth of His divine nature. No one who hears My voice must accept My Son's Body and Blood in the hands! The chalice shall turn, and you shall be bathed in His Blood!
"It was, My children, a sinister plan from the depths of hell to remove the knowledge of the divinity of My Son from among you." - Our Lady, February 10, 1978
REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SON OF GOD
"A priest is a man of God, chosen solely from the world to be a representative of the Son of God.... As a man of God, he brings to you the Body and Blood of your Savior.
"I tell you, my brothers and sister, that none shall take in his or her hands the purified Body of your Savior! Only the consecrated fingers and hands of the representative of Christ the Lord shall give and bring this gift to mankind!" - St. Theresa, October 2, 1975
"We ask and repeat that no one handle in unconsecrated hands the Body of My Son! It will be defiled and discarded, unless only a legally-ordained priest, a man of God, with purified fingers of the Holy Spirit, give the Body and Blood of My Son to each one under his care." - Our Lady, September 6, 1975
"The greatest sorrow that smites My Heart, My children, is the desecration to My Son's Body. These abominable acts are being committed by His own in His houses, His churches upon earth.
"I repeat again that none shall bring the sacred Body of My Son, His Body and Blood, to another but a legally-ordained priest with consecrated hands. I say, My children, consecrated hands, blessed hands, washed clean by the Holy Spirit! No man shall render excuses for defilement of My Son's Body."- Our Lady, May 14, 1977
"No soiled hands can touch My Son's Body. Only God can purify the hands." - Our Lady, September 7, 1970
"Look, my child, upon the abominations that have fallen into the cup. Unclean hands shall stain the Body of your Creator." - St. Michael, September 28, 1973
ACCEPT THE GIFT
"Accept the gift of My Son often, His physical Body, present in your Eucharist--but given to you only by consecrated hands, hands blessed by My Son and ordained to do His work and represent Him. Turn your face from those who wish to profane the Body of My Son! The light of the Holy Spirit will guide you in this respect." - Our Lady, February 11, 1971
"My child, you ask why I cry? I shed tears of great anguish. I watch anew the desecration to My Son’s Body being committed upon earth. None shall place their hands upon His Body! My Son has given you in trust those He has chosen among mankind to represent Him—your priests. None others shall carry My Son to mankind! You shall not defile His Body by giving Him into the hands of women, or those that have not been prepared by the Father as legally ordained priests in the houses of God—laziness, preoccupied with the world and with the pleasures of the flesh! Return to your habits and set an example as a man of God in the House of God, an example that will gather the sheep, not scatter them!" - Our Lady, November 1, 1974
"In the beginning I gave to you, through your prophets, the establishment of My Church upon earth. The rules were simple but now have become changed and defiled to please the carnal nature of mankind. You must restore the holiness to My House! You must bend your knees in humility and penance." - Jesus, December 31, 1975

Crucifix on front and
back door... The only real protection against
Jesus - "Pray and wear your sacramentals. And, also, My children, I ask you again to place a crucifix upon your door. Both front and back doors must have a crucifix. I say this to you because there will be carnage within your areas, and this will pass you by if you keep your crucifix upon your doors."

There are 4 Things You Must Have to Survive the End Times:
1.) The Douay-Rheims Holy Bible...
"I ask that all who hear My voice will take their Bibles, and if they do not have one, search, but find the right Bible, those printed not after 1965, My children." - Jesus, October 5, 1985
"You must all obtain a copy of the Book of life and love, the Bible. Do not accept the new mods. Try to find in your bookstores the old Bibles, My children, for many are being changed to suit the carnal nature of man. I repeat, sin has become a way of life." - Our Lady, October 6, 1992
"I must ask you all to read but a few short chapters a day now, the Book of life and love, your Bible. Knowledge must be gained for all the disciples of My Son, for you will be attacked by scientific minds. But do not be concerned what you will say to them when accosted, for the words will be given to you by the Spirit." - Our Lady, April 10, 1976
The Douay-Rheims Bible was published in 1899. It is the official Bible of the Roman Catholic Church. Almost all other Bibles have been rewritten by Satan. See: http://www.tldm.org/directives/d33.htm , http://www.tldm.org/directives/d415.htm and http://www.tldm.org/directives/d182.htm If you don't have a Douay-Rheims Bible order it now! (Order Form) Yours and your loved ones salvation could depend on it.
Read the Bible cover to cover. If you read 4 chapters a day, you will complete the whole Bible in 334 days. I have read the Bible 2 times and working on the third time. A 75 year old Baptism gentleman told me that he and his wife have read the Bible nine times. Wow!
