What an *amazing* coincidence.
I took a communion wafer home with me after mass this morning…
Nobody noticed and I didn’t get any phone calls all day. I figured somebody would notice that it didn’t get eaten but no one has. I’m starting to feel guilty about it. Should I return it to the church or throw it away?
So far, there are a lot of Catholics responding…
yes, Please return it to the Church as it is Jesus—The Lord. Do not take Communion again until you go to Confession as you are bringing judgment down on yourself. Are you even Roman Catholic?
if you are not catholic return it to the church, there will be no repercussions, if you know a catholic as a friend confide in he or she and tell them you did wrong, ask them to take to the priest, i am glad you are sorry and i am sure you will be forgiven . god bless
You need to return it to the church. Please dont throw it away or consume it
Not trying to open a can of worms here… but I think the page could use a few alternative points of view.
I mean, it is just a cracker, right…?
Personally, I don’t care what he does with it. (I assume the whole question is just a joke, anyway, and he doesn’t actually have a communion wafer.)
I still think it would be a mistake — and would accomplish nothing — to insult the Catholics currently responding to the question or to offer a response to the question that involves rubbing our rational beliefs in their faces (i.e. flush the wafer down the toilet, run over the wafer with a car, etc).
Would it be funny? To you, maybe.
Would it help the Catholics understand that their beliefs about the wafer are illogical? Nope. They’d just latch on to the beliefs even more strongly than before.
