Lay "Eucharistic Ministers" at Pope Francis Mass, July 8

Saint Thomas Aquinas taught, "out of reverence for this Sacrament, nothing touches it but what is consecrated." Thus, he said the sacred vessels of the altar are consecrated for this holy purpose, but also, the priest's hands are consecrated for touching this Sacrament. St. Thomas said that it is therefore not lawful for anyone else to touch It, except to save It from desecration. (Summa, III, Q. 82. Art. 3).

Watched the Pope arrive by boat to the place where he celebrates Mass. The 'altar' consists of a gondola type boat..and the two concelebrants were wearing blue tye-dye hippie chasubles. When with all this absurdity end?

They're not "ministers", only the priests! This mass of the Pope's on July 8th, 2013 was in Lampedusa, Italy. Disgraceful!
