Hi, I'm a Eucharist Minister, Please Don't Punch Me in the Car Park.
I mean really??? Do Altar Servers need to wear a badge? We can see them. And a Chorister? We can hear them.
But there's one that might be handy. Yes, the Eucharistic Minister badge. Just so we know who to punch in the car park! And no that's not a euphemism.
Still, small mercies. At least there's not a Priest badge. I think we can still recognise one of those on our own.
Mind you, the way some Jesuits dress... (and no-one mention the nuns OK?).
Now I want to see someone stood in Mass holding a large lollipop saying with the words "how may I help you?" emboldened on it (in liturgical colours of the season, natch!). The way some modern churches are built to resemble small branches of Tescos surely this is only a matter of time?
While we're at it, if there are a few queues for the Eucharistic Monsters, perhaps we should employ a Post Office style p.a. system: "position number three please" in numerous languages (inc Tagalog). But no Latin. No sirree.
