If the language reported in the article is correct, the priest was wrong to use it. But "get this thing out of my church" could mean the argument, not the deceased.

It's also unclear where the chalice was. Even though 'sanctuary' properly means the area around the altar, some people use it mean the entire church space, as distinct from, say, a reception room or hallways or parish offices. And why would someone be greeting visitors by the altar?

More likely, the chalice was at the back of the church, to be brought up by family members during the presentation of the gifts during the Offertory, this being a canonisation of the deceased NO funeral.

This is what happens when you turn a church into a reception hall. Greeting people should be done outside the church, and the sacred vessels should remain in the sanctuary to be handled only by the priest, or at least by the servers. This sort of thing never would have happened at a TLM, because the chalice would have been either on the altar already or in the sacristy.
