For the Sinner on the Go

Advertised in the latest "Communion Resources" catalog (click for full-size):

Remembrance_5











Now as one belonging to a church that confesses the Real Presence, naturally I find this offensive.  But surely even the most strident Sacramentarian must bristle somewhat at the irreverence of this contraption.  Whatever one's Eucharistic theology, the dignity due Christ's Holy Supper can hardly be maintained amidst the din of crinkling cellophane as hundreds of parishioners fumble with their communion snack packs.

If reverence and Godly fear have no place at the Lord's Table, then they truly have no place in worship whatsoever.  The God of the "Remembrance Cup" resembles less the consuming fire of Hebrews 12 than the unassuming clerk at 7-Eleven.
