Kirche des Fliegenden Spaghettimonsters Österreich
Answer from FAQ-Stellinus<Arrgh>FAQ-FSM.de
By the way: Other religions really face the problem of using religious, i.e. magical, acts to remove the „holiness“ of objects. With „magic acts“, an ability of a god is imitated – like to transform a piece of bread into the „Body of Christ“. The inverse effect is to be used in cases like these: Imagine the altar bread falling onto the floor, not going in the mouth; the priest accidentally pours some communion wine on the altar cloth or holy oils suddenly smell somehow rancid. Should all these holy items be simply disposed in the rubbish or the sewers?
After all, this is the „Body of Christ“ or the „Blood of Christ!“
That is why the Catholic Church has created a kind of „holy sink“ in the form of the sacrarium. It is an opening in the floor of the church or sacristy that leads directly into the ground. The earth beneath the church building is considered „holy“ by the consecration of the church; thus it is considered a suitable place to dispose of materials in a dignified manner. Before disposal, the „Body of Christ“ is very, very slowly dissolved in water by a magician (priests or deacons, but never a simple believer) or the „precious blood“ must be diluted with a lot of DHMO to become bread and water again.
