QUERY: The GIRM no. 237 says that particles of the eucharistic bread are to be collected after the consecration, but it is not clear what is to be done about them. REPLY: The GIRM no. 237 must be taken in context with other articles that deal with the same point. The description of the basic form of celebration says clearly: "After communion the priest returns to the altar and collects any remaining particles. Then, standing at the side of the altar or at the side table, he purifies the paten or ciborium «over the chalice», then purifies the chalice . . . and dries it with a purificator" (GIRM no. 120). The Order of Mass with a congregation no. 138 says: "After communion the priest or deacon purifies the paten «over the chalice» and the chalice itself." The Order of Mass without a congregation no. 31 says: "Then the priest purifies the chalice «over the paten» and the chalice itself." The point, therefore, is quite clear: Not 8 (1972) 195.
