EWTN Catholic Q&A
Falling Sacrament
Question from Dominic Aseng Edal on 01-10-2013:

I am a communion minister in the parish. One day, as I was giving holy communion, the sacrament (host) dropped onto the floor. Being panic, I did not know what to do. The priest was away attending a meeting at the diocesan center. So, I consumed the said sacrament (host)myself. Please tell me whether what I was doing was correct or not and advise me on this matter. Thank you.

Dear Dominic,

You did well.
