The liturgical vessels that he touches are sacred. They must be handled with respect because they are the property of God. Like the hands of the priest, they are touching Christ during His Sacrifice. Touching them should not be entrusted to altar boys who are not in a state of sanctifying grace. The altar boy, who serves at the Holy Mass and is not in a state of grace, defiles the holy Sacrifice. It is like allowing Satan under the very cross and placing him on par with the angels next to the Lord. Jesus suffers feeling disgust, and having surrendered, He suffers it helplessly. The vessels also cannot be touched by random people, because they already contain in themselves the imprint of holiness, which will never disappear. In the case of desecration, (the vessel) is being profaned, but it still remains sacred. The trade of holy objects present nowadays is an explicit offense to God, a sacrilege. It is forbidden to sell out sacred vessels outside of the Catholic Church. They cannot come out from consecrated hands into unconsecrated hands, let alone in the hands of pagans and godless people. The Church will also pay for this abuse, for selling off holiness, the property of God, as if it was the property of man. During wars, people perished for sacred vessels, so they would not fall into the hands of infidels. These people received their reward. In the same way, those who are selling the sacred vessels will incur a just punishment. No destitution is great enough to make it worthwhile for a man to sell the property of God, which is holy forever, because if only once, it was used during the Holy Eucharist.
