Thoughts? "As she was not able to open her mouth, she had been receiving the Eucharist through Gastrostomy Tube."

The reason it may be disposed of is that, after it has been dissolved, it no longer has the accidents of bread, and thus has ceased to be the Blessed Sacrament. From what is written in this article, I believe this woman was in spiritual communion with Our Lord, but she was not receiving the Eucharist, and the priest should be disciplined. What is more likely is that, in these days of disorientation, what the priest did will become standard practice in these situations, which is will be another big step away from the true Faith.

Fromme indische Katholikin (Krebs) erhielt Kommunion über Magensonde. Was denkt ihr darüber?

In einem solchen Fall wäre es besser, der Priester würde mit einer Pipette etwas vom konsekrierten Wein in den Mund träufeln.
