What will they think of next?

One of the blogs i check every day is the Catholic Dialogue site. While I don't agree with everything they post (some posts are a little off-balanced, especially when it comes to Fr. Michael Prieur and St. Joseph's Health Care Center) it usually offers something that is thought provoking and interesting.

Today there were two posts the caught my eye.

First there is a report on something that claims to be a device that will allow the distribution of communion in a new hygienic fashion. It has got to be one of the stupidest items I have ever seen. It reminds me of the days immediately following the Second Vatican Council when changes came at Catholic fast and furious. After one mass when we had witnessed some strange new development (I can't remember what it was - there were so many) I remember my father saying that eventually we will see people dispensing hosts from the type of device that bus drivers used to wear on their belts to make change. I am glad that Dad has already died because he would not want to see this new innovation.

The second post is in the same vein. It reports about a holy water dispenser that works the same way as automated soap dispensers.

Maybe I'm just getting too old, but I find it hard to believe that such "innovations" will find their way into our Catholic churches. At least I hope not.
