UPDATED: Corona Fallout – A Local Sacrilege CANCELLED

Last updated on June 7, 2020

UPDATE: Fr Fanta has an updated video. He will NOT be distributing the Holy Eucharist in plastic bags.

The coronavirus has left an indelible mark upon our society. Corona fallout has now spawned a truly novel idea, a local sacrilege of Our Blessed Lord in the Holy Eucharist.

Could we ever have thought that something like this would even happen within the bosom of our Holy Mother, the Church?

Reverend Thomas Fanta, pastor of St. Dominic’s in Shaker Heights, Ohio, announced via YouTube that he and his parish would begin offering the Holy Eucharist to parishioners, or anyone?, who drives up to the doors of the Church. And how would Jesus be offered? In a plastic bag. [This link to his initial video no longer works. He has removed it from YouTube. It was probably a prudent decision, so as to not cause any further confusion. But its still around.]

Friends, no further commentary is needed to explain why this is wrong. Rather, what has happened here? How does a priest, lettered with theological credentials, arrive at a decision like this with full gusto?

Quite simply, I think the answer is he is simply acting in a way consistent with how he was formed in the seminary. What’s shocking is that there is not more of this. Catholic education, from grade school on up, is so utterly anti-Catholic that it invites this sort of objective offense towards Our Blessed Lord. These modernist institutions need to be avoided, or so utterly inundated with Tradition-minded MEN that they transform into fitting and proper Catholic schools. Either way, competent hierarchy should remove priests like this from ministerial function.

If you are a parishioner of St. Dominic’s, and you are troubled by this, I invite you to the Traditional Latin Mass. Our Lord is always guaranteed the utmost regard for His presence in the Blessed Sacrament.

Fr. Fanta also mentions that, in addition to the thousands of bags he has, hundreds of pix will be likewise available for the “faithful” to take home.

I think this warrants a strong response from Faithful Catholics. Body bags are for the dead, not the Living God.

    72 hours after the cdc states corona is not transmitted via surfaces, this priest is taking the precaution of placing the Blessed Sacrament in sandwich bag?! I think I get it…. established science is found from answers to email inquiries. This would be sacrilegious if these hosts are actually consecrated. I’m no canon lawyer, but I highly doubt this guy can confect; for one must also possess the tacit intention to do what the Church intends in bringing about a sacrament. My old Lutheran pastors would be appalled if another Lutheran minister did this! I’m surprised he didn’t ask recipients of these baggies to say, “trick or treat” when receiving. Followed by a blessing with a squirt gun…. water from the blessed font, of course.

    This is an Abomination. Please stop this immediately. Oh Lord, please forgive us.

    Dear fellow catholics, you do great harm to the mystical body bringing public scorn by publicly posting in lieu of our Lord’s prescription for addressing a wrong: first go directly to your brother, then to his superior, lastly public condemnation. Did you even address the offense directly? I doubt it. Just as I emailed the priest in question, I’m addressing you here at your invitation.

    Seems like Father is not letting the “crisis go to waste”.
