We’re initiating a new feature in The Remnant called “Who’s the Genius?”. In that column, we’ll be asking questions such as:
Who’s the genius that determined it was time to can the Communion rail, pitch the paten, and drop the Sacred Species like popcorn into the hands of everyone—even though for over a thousand years only the consecrated hands of the alter christi were allowed to touch consecrated Hosts?
Who’s the genius that decided it was a good idea to introduce women into the sanctuary—the Holy of Holies—when after several millennia and for most all the major religions in history, it had always been reserved for men, for priests?
Who’s the genius that determined the time had come to remove Christ altogether from the sanctuary by hiding the tabernacle almost anywhere but where it belongs?
