EXTRAORDINARY EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS
POST VATICAN II
Laymen and laywomen whose function is to distribute the Host in Communion
when there is a shortage of priests. Some Roman Catholic commentators are
complaining that even when there are available priest and deacons,
extraordinary eucharistic ministers are being used. This, of course, does
not affect the validity of the sacrament, but its being licit.
From AD LIMINA TALKS, Paul VI, page 41: "They are envisioned by the
Instruction IMMENSAE CARITATIS where there is a genuine lack of ministers."
