Thanks for the link to the petition--done and done.

Kevin Jones

Signed. Anybody know how long has it been up? It's at about 3450 signatures now.

MaureenM

Now 3,805.

What's interesting is I signed it soon after Amy suggested; I was 3419. And now it's close to 4000 and I quickly skimmed through every single one between mine and the latest. I've seen other on-line petitions and they usually get plenty of jokers and trolls, but so far there was only one! And so far, everyone gets the whole idea of the Real Presence. That's kind of amazing.

Thanks for the link, Amy. I just signed. The number of signatories is now 4,709 -- and counting! Amazing indeed!

Pat Gonzalez

Oops, I goofed -- it's 4,416 -- less than previously stated, but still pretty darn good!

The petition is great - thanks for linking to it!
I think, though, that a boycott of eBay is in order. I've had several e-mails back and forth with them, and they are completely intransigent on this issue. Clueless, really.
I suspect if enough Catholics and others made it clear to them that we will take our business elsewhere over this, they might get a clue a bit faster. What do you all think?

William Bloomfield

Signed. #4606. Thanks for the link.

So how did the miscreant get a consecrated host? Is he a Catholic? This is yet another illustration of why traditional reception on the tongue - not outlawed anywhere in the USA but strongly discouraged by the USCCB - was instituted in the first place.

According to the auction itself (which has mysteriously disappeared even though most auctions stay up 90 days afterwards. The tactic is unfortunately already starting to work as people are writing in complaining that this is an unsubstantiated claim) the seller went to see JPII and thought nothing of partaking of the Eucharist (admits in first line of auction s/he's nonCatholic). Then s/he got back into line for seconds, and this one s/he kept.

I see there's another consecrated host up for auction on ebay: item # 6174663171 by user 666mikael666. It went up 4/28.
