How should unconsecrated hosts be treated?

Question:

How should unconsecrated hosts be treated? Should unconsecrated hosts be just dropped in to the ciborium or carefully stacked? I’m having issues with another sacristan.

Answer:

There is no need to be scrupulous about the care of unconsecrated hosts. Until they have been consecrated during Mass, the hosts are only baked wheat and water. You are free to pour unconsecrated hosts into a ciborium rather than stacking them.
