"I'm sorry, Jesus"

I should probably emulate the little old lady lector and tell Jesus I'm sorry more often. I found it rather endearing that the little old lady who reads the Bible for Covington, KY Cathedral Mass whispered "I'm sorry, Jesus" after she stumbled over Paul's letter to the Romans 8:35-39 for the Sunday August 3, 2014 mass:

Reading 2 ROM 8:35, 37-39
Brothers and sisters:
What will separate us from the love of Christ?
Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine,
or nakedness, or peril, or the sword?
No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly
through him who loved us.
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life,
nor angels, nor principalities,
nor present things, nor future things,
nor powers, nor height, nor depth,
nor any other creature will be able to separate us
from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Maybe the church should subcontract out to robots to perform readings to avoid future mishaps:




Later on, some little old man couldn't wait to receive Eucharist which seems odd since he waited till the very end of the line before he lost patience and stomped off:

He apparently got torqued off that the priest waved him off to serve some weirdo who still kneels  to receive Eucharist:






What I don't understand is why the female Eucharistic minister didn't think on her feet and simply divide her remaining wafer with the last two people in her line vs also fobbing off the old man into the priest's line. Seems ironic that the communion hymn title was "You Satisfy the Hungry Heart" when, obviously, the little old guy's hungry heart wasn't satisfied, possibly because he didn't go to confirmation and receive the fruits of the spirit, specifically, patience:
