An interesting picture of Pope Paul VI using the fistula.

Another thing I never heard of but probably existed.  Interesting how Wikipedia makes no mention of such a thing, except briefly on the Papal Mass page.
what on earth?

excuse me, but is this some kind of joke?  the pope had a fistula?  he looks fine in that picture!  and please do NOT show a picture of his fistula!  if you are curious about fistulas, you can read about them here:  http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/...002365.htm

you children have ants in your pants.  but i guess it's friday night, so . . . party on.

My first reaction to the subject line as well, but:

Rubrics of Solemn Papal Mass, courtesy of the New Liturgical Movement Wrote:"The deacon approaches with the chalice, and the sacristan gives the fistula to the assistant bishop. Then the Pope places the fistula in the chalice, and so receives the precious Blood. The Agnus Dei is concluded by the choir after the Pope has made his Communion."

If a fistula in medical terms is a connection between two organs, then why can't a straw be a sort of fistula too?

I mean, everyone calls it a "trumpet" but in Latin it's a "tuba."

Exactly so.  :incense:

From: http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/12232a.htm

"The deacon elevates the paten containing the Host covered with the asterisk, and places it in the hands of the subdeacon, which are covered with the linteum pectorale, so that the subdeacon can bring it to the throne, then the deacon elevates the chalice and brings it to the pope at the throne. The pope consumes the smaller part of the Host, and communicates from the chalice through a little tube called the fistula. He then divides the other part of the Host, gives communion to the deacon and subdeacon, and gives them the kiss of peace, after which he receives the wine of the purification from another chalice and purifies his fingers in a little cup. The deacon and subdeacon, having returned to the altar, partake of the chalice through the fistula, the subdeacon consumes the particle of the Host in the chalice, and both the deacon and the subdeacon consume the wine and the water used in the purification of the chalice. The pope returns to the altar to finish the Mass. After the blessing the assistant priest publishes the plenary indulgence. At the end of the last Gospel the pope goes to the sedia gestatoria, puts on the tiara, and returns in procession as he had entered."

The Papal straw is very fancy too!
