I can't believe it's not Jesus!

"It's not a symbol of the body and blood of Christ, but is in fact the body and blood of Christ," said Neil MacCarthy, director of communications for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto. "The Communion wafer starts as a host and becomes the body of Christ. And that happens in the course of the sacrament we celebrate."

"We believe we are holding Jesus in our hands, so to put Jesus in your pocket or to put Jesus on the ground [is serious]. If it falls on the ground it has to be consumed. We never throw Jesus out," Mr. MacCarthy said.
Mr. MacCarthy appears to have exceeded his own "best before" date here.

Desecrating the host of the holy spirit? For shame. I think he's going to hell for that one. The right thing to do if you don't want to take the host is to not go up in the first place. I guess he was hoping for some wine.

I can't help thinking Steve would have preferred a little cheese with it. Failing that, chocolate icing couldn't hurt.

Maybe he saw the image of MJ in his wafer and panicked?

You simply have the coolest graphics. Love it!

That's weird... Here the Catholic priests basically put the host in your mouth, maybe to prevent this.
