Eh?

'A 35mm film tube (Letters, March 3) makes a very handy pyx, which somehow seems an appropriate - if slightly chavish - development,' says this letter in the Guardian today - part of one of those random ongoing letters-pages discussions, in this case about the many uses of the little thingumies. Am entirely bewildered by this contribution. Although I am intrigued that the Guardian does at least assume its readers know what a pyx is.

Actually, are there rules about containers in which to reserve the Blessed Sacrament? Will anything, used with suitable reverence, do?
