Reviews - What do customers think about Communion of the Sick?
The absolute basics Aug 24, 2000
Communion of the Sick is a pocket sized book that has all the basics that a lay person needs to minister to sick and homebound adults as an extraordinary minister of the Eucharist. It provides the rite in ordinary circumstances, the normal rite for homebound; it also provides the rite for hospitals or institutions where the minister goes from room to room. It provides a sufficient variety of reaadnings and prayers that one can return to the same home week after week without fear of become repetitive in a negative sensse.
The book is well designed; the user can easily follow the instructions, there is no necessity to page flip as liturgical books often require. Highly recommended as a basic book.
A handy ritual for Extraordinary Ministers Jul 29, 2000
I have found this booklet to be a good ritual for Extra-Ordinary Ministers of Communion when they take the Eucharist to those in homes and hospitals. It follows the offical liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church for communion in these circumstances, and helps bring a sense of sacredness, prayer, and liturgy to this ministry. It also provides the Church's guidelines for this ministry which helps avoid some of the common abuses of the Eucharist which occur when lay people are charged with this task.
