The HOLY Eucharist

So last week I helped tidy up after Mass as the regular woman wasn't here for some reason. So I picked up the ciborium to notice dozens of particles of Jesus left there, so I consumed them. Fair enough... The problem is, there is no Catholic church where I live so the priest travels for Mass, and the woman who usually tidies up brings the sacred vessels from her home to the Anglican church where our priest celebrates Mass... my worry is from next week I can't check the ciborium. And the sacred vessels go in a bag... I can't help to imagine how many particles are being desecrated at the bottom of that bag, and it makes me feel confused and sad that the focal point of Catholicism is being disregarded. What faith is it without the Eucharist?
I'm scared if I go speak to the priest, firstly he's not English so doesn't understand much, what if he thinks I'm being rude and gets angry or annoyed?

I'm feeling so lost at the moment with the treatment of the Eucharist, I saw this HORRIBLE occurrence at WYD: WYD: Holy Communion from disposable plastic cups at Mega-Mass | Fr. Z's Blog

Why do we have to have mega-masses for the Holy Father? Why not a spiritual communion for people and only give Holy Communion to those nearest the Altar? I'm so so sad, disgusted and angry to see the treatment of the Eucharist in these ways. It tempts me to only go to the Extraordinary form (non-SSPX) in a nearby town all the time, to feel comforted our Lord is being treated well. But that is like I am ignoring the problem. I'm confused and don't know what to do

It's the priests job to make sure the Body & Blood are taken care of properly. You do need to discuss this with the priest in a non accusatory fashion.

No, itís more than that. Itís a justification, an excuse, for not helping each other and those outside the Church fall in love with Jesus Christ. How easy it is to talk about everything, but about Jesus hardly at all.

I was going to say, I was a bit confused there for a moment. I was under the impression that only the priest consumed the remaining gifts...

The priest or deacon is responsible for purifying the vessels after Holy Communion.

I wouldn't bother reading Fr Z's website, nuff said.

Follow your Bishop and how he directs the priests of his dioceses.

My advice:
Approach it like a question. Tell him you found particles in the ciborium and ask him what should be done about them.

Yes, this is true, but this doesn't always happen. I know this from experience. Sometimes its a case of the priest forgetting, or not caring enough to purify them correctly.

I like him. (Surprise, surprise)

Follow your Bishop and how he directs the priests of his dioceses.
Good advice, but I'm not sure what this has to do with the question at hand.
