Good news from Rome.

Looks like some things are getting tidy'ed up a bit!

The Vatican is no longer allowing the indult for extra-ordinary ministers of the Eucharist to purify sacred vessels at Mass.

from CNS: Lay ministers may not cleanse Communion vessels, Pope Benedict says

It also touches on the issue of Communion under both species, something I think is over-emphasized to the point of being willing to risk "accidents." After reading Redemptionis Sacramentum, I really believe that it is something that should not be done as often as it is here in the States.

I haven't read the articles yet, but The Curt Jester referred to an article done by Galea Salutis on the subject.
