Communion rail cloth
#20
I was told that the rail cloth is a Roman custom, but that it is being used incorrectly.  The intention is to catch any straying particles (the paten is suppose to catch a falling host).  After communion, it is to be held and folded in a precise manner to make sure all particles are contained.

Nowadays though,  the cloth is being flipped after use which inadvertently launches our Lord across the sanctuary if stray particles are on it.  It's better not to have one at all in this case because it is easier to see stray particles on a bare rail.
