The entire article is well worth a read IMHO!
The priest (or maybe someone else) can consume it if it's not gotten unfit to eat in some way. Who would stick a consecrated host on a candlestick like that? If they didn't want it, they shouldn't have taken it or returned it to the Eucharistic minister.
A: A host which has been partially consumed in some way may be disposed of by placing it in water until it has dissolved, and then pouring the water into the sacrarium or into the ground.
Well, I don't see where they did anything too wrong. It should take some time to dissolve.
While searching for the answer, I read that they are not supposed to use those huge hosts. They are supposed to be smaller than the diameter of the chalice in case some particles fall off. I've been to masses with large hosts and received pieces of them which I thought was kind of special but maybe they aren't supposed to do it.
I've never seen one of those huge ones used, found several pictures on a website.
Although I believe in separation of church and state, I also believe in separation of homosexuality and church, of abortion and church. The church cannot allow sin into its midst and still remain the church. The Left won’t be satisifed until there are homosexual abortion doctor priests.
She says the Eucharist is the Body of Christ; that she is a practicing Catholic; and that it sounds nuts.
She also says it is a matter of faith.
I once went to Mass at Mother Angelica’s Church of Our lady of the Angels.
The priest, a very devoted priest, whom I’ve seen often since, said, holding up the Eucharist, that it was Jesus, the Body of Jesus, whether we believed it or not.
So, it is not the Body of Christ if we believe it, as the writer says, It’s the Body of Christ no matter what we believe.

As for the MSM, I'm sure they are in for a shock, as they discover that the Pope is indeed Catholic :-)
Fascinating. I also never heard of this miracle before reading this.
In 1999, in the presence of then Cardinal Bergoglio, Dr. Ricardo Castanon, an atheist at the time, sent the fragment to New York for analysis, but did not inform the team of scientists its origin so as not to prejudice the study. One scientist, Dr. Frederic Zugibe, a cardiologist and forensic pathologist, determined that the substance was real flesh and contained human DNA, and furthermore he concluded was a piece of heart muscle.
Yet this was only the beginning of what would be a phenomenal enigma. DNA tests on the sample showed it to be that of a male, AB positive blood type. What is extraordinary about this fact is that the DNA is the exact same match as another Eucharist 'miracle' that took place in the 8th century in Lanciano, Italy confirming that both samples came from the same person.
