I recently experienced a Catholic mass at the end of a funeral service. It took ages, as lines of faithful believers patiently queued to receive the host and wine from the solitary priest, who went about his duties unaided, even though there seemed to be other priestly figures all over the place.
set me thinking that the Catholic church could learn some lessons from the Hindus and create a Kali or Shiva-like, multiple armed priest, to dispense the holy communion.
Of course he would actually be not one, but several priests wearing a suitable uniting garment through which their many arms could protrude, simultaneously dispensing to several worshipers in a choreographed harmony of arm movements.
A range of appropriately sized priests would need to be carefully chosen, with progressively longer arms and skinny bodies so that the Kali-Mass priestly figure does not become too big and bulky.
Green attire, and balancing on one leg, optional (difficult in this case) (see link)
