German Paganism: Everyone Brings His Bread and Eats It as Communion

Frammersbach parish-priest, Father Bernhard Albert (65), Würzburg Diocese, asks his followers to take a slice of bread in a plastic box to Mass, writes MainPost.de (June 8).

At the offertory, Albert instructs his followers to open the box and to make a blessing over the bread. At Communion, everyone eats their bread: "It couldn't be more hygienic," Albert cheers. It couldn't be more Protestant either.

Albert imagines that this is "exactly what Jesus himself practiced". His followers are enthusiastic: "They report that they experience communion much more intensively than usual."

Albert has also written a text for Pentecost Sunday for saying Mass at home. It says:

"Please take the bread in your hand, make a cross over the bread, and speak: We take and eat the bread: it is for us Jesus' body + which was given up for us. We do it in his memory.

Communio: Eat now the blessed and transformed bread in memory of Jesus, knowing that he is bound to us in love."

Urspringen Father Stefan Redelberger thinks Albert's approach is very good, and will introduce it into his parish.

In Duttenbrunn parish, Würzburg Diocese, the priest consecrates hosts, but delivers them in muffin like paper envelopes (picture below).

Of course. Germans haven't really believed in God in 500 years.

@Ultraviolet there's are good apples in every bushel. Saints come from everywhere. But, again, if you were more interested in history and facts than being obsessed with me you'd edify yourself and maybe doing something more productive with your seemingly endless amounts of time.

"there's are good apples in every bushel. Saints come from everywhere."

...from the man who made no such distinction when he said, "The Germans have been the problem with the world for 500 years"

Don't flatter yourself, buttercup. :P Judging by how often I've corrected you on "history and facts", just in the last …More

Don't flatter yourself, buttercup. :P Judging by how often I've corrected you on "history and facts", just in the last two days, your advice is entirely misplaced.

"and maybe doing something more productive with your seemingly endless amounts of time."

...said the man ignorantly presuming to lecture his betters, notably one of them who just happens to work fourteen to sixteen hours a day.

That's something nitwits like you never quite understand. GTV is a temporary diversion.. I know what the problem is.... you assume everyone shares your limitations, your stupid plodding nature. That's a mistake, Jimbo..

We don't. ;-)

But did they bring Schweineschmalz and Riesling? I mean you cant make a meal out of it otherwise, and THAT IS ALL THEY ARE DOING. Eating in Church.

Only a priest can consecrate the Eucharist. From the article... "We can see the disaster that would result if every Christian were able to consecrate the elements if we look at 1 Corinthians 11:20-30"
foward
It is really what the Novus Ordo also tends to: the whole assembly is a priest. All this would be impossible without the Novus Ordo.
