04/12/2005: "Consecrated Eucharist for sale on Ebay!?!"

One never needs to look far to see a complete lack of respect for the Catholic faith, but it is rare to see one as comprehensive as with the Ebay seller diversifiedsolutions and his auction for Eucharist from Mass w/ Pope John Paul II in 1998 +Xtras.

My first instinct was to bid to get the host back in the hands of the Church. That may have been the hope of the first bidder named saintlyc344y. The auction was won by a bidder named oz_loves_montana_coffee who used the Buy It Now feature to buy it for $2000. It is rumored over on EnvoyEncore (who gets the hat tip for this post) that this bidder bought it to take it back to his priest who will handle it properly.

What really bugs me about this is the lack of respect this person who sold it has for Catholicism. He proclaims boldly that he's not Catholic and doesn't think he's going to hell for selling this on EBay. OK, that's your own perogative to think that, but how about some respect for the faith? How about the common knowlege that everyone knows that only Catholics are able to partake of the the Eucharist? Why did you choose not only to partake but to take a 2nd host as a sourvenir? How about the knowlege that Catholics believe it is the body and blood of Christ and it is to be treated reverentially? Can you have some respect for our beliefs?

Apparently not.
