Can we PLEASE drop the "Eucharistic Minister" title?

I know it was a slip and I revere my Cardinal Archbishop but describe Dr. Mary Grassa O'Neill, the new secretary of education and superintendent of schools in the Archdiocese of Boston a "eucharistic minister" of her Milton parish is just plain wrong. (You'll have to scroll down a bit to see it, and I realize it's not that big of a deal and the blog is worth reading, but still...)

Folks. Please. READ Redemptionis Sacramentum if you don't believe me. Use your "find" button and search for either 154 or Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.

Update: My Cardinal Archbishop's blog now refers to Dr. O'Neill as an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion. I knew it was just a slip!
