Now, this is just wrong...

From a John Allen article in NCR:

Religious orders and Catholic movements have joined the antiwar push. The Community of Sant’Egidio organized marches for peace in dozens of cities around the world Jan. 1 to coincide with the papal peace message. The most dramatic gesture came from priests of the Comboni order in the Italian region of Puglia, who refused to celebrate Mass on the Feast of the Epiphany, Jan. 6, as a sort of “eucharistic strike” to protest against preparations for war.

So...eucharist is...a commodity. A tool. I can't think of an incident that better exemplifies the wrong-headed notions of Eucharist that pervade our Church. Not even clown masses. Nope. Not even that.
