Q&A

Was this priest wrong to tell us to leave the spilled precious blood where it was?

8/4/2011

Question:

Please help us! Our newly ordained, young priest refused to remove the precious blood that unknowingly had been spilled on the carpet by an extraordinary minister of the Eucharistic. The priest said, &quot;Leave it; it will go away.&quot;(We removed &quot;it.&quot;) He said that Thomas Aquinas taught that when consecrated bread or wine changes appearance, Jesus is no longer present, so, when the Precious Blood dries, Jesus is no longer present. Therefore, it should be left to dry so that Jesus will go away. We do not believe that these are the teachings of Thomas or any other Doctor of the Church. <br />
