The last ordinary Roman Catholic Mass I was at with my mother's side of the family about two months ago there were 4 lay people handing out the host plus the priest (5 handing out the host). Then there were 2 handing out the chalice. That is 7 people handing out Communion for about what seemed to be 75 people. Hardly extra-ordinary circumstances.
Right. Of all liturgical abuses, I think an overabundance of Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist is the most common I've seen. You can usually tell the parishes where this is abused when you see in the bulletin that they are called "Eucharistic ministers" (NOT the correct term). For my part, I have always refused to become one when asked, pointing to a host of instructions from the Holy See specifying that they are to be used only when absolutely necessary. In most cases, it's not because the priest is too lazy, it's because of the preponderance of the silly idea that people aren't participating at the Mass if they aren't physically "doing" all kinds of things---to some, the Sacrifice of the Mass is like a Little League baseball game, where everybody has to get at least one at-bat.
It's going to take a while to clamp down on this, though things have improved over the dark days of the 1970s.
