So, we went to receive the Eucharist at Mass today at the "more traditional" parish we've been attending since early summer. This was the first time being in Father's line, though. Timmy was first; he bowed and approached as normal, and held out his hands to receive the Precious Body. Father mouthed the word "no," and held the Precious Body in preparation to place it on Timmy's tongue. After Mass, Timmy was puzzled by this; he's never been told that he couldn't receive in the hand before. I didn't know what to tell him. I know a lot of people at this particular parish receive on the tongue, but not everyone - not even today. Can anyone explain what happened?

A bishop can choose not to permit communion on the hand in his diocese, but I do not know if a priest can do so at the parish level.

And since our see is currently vacant, who knows? However, I have attended other parishes in this Diocese and received on the hand from Father. Go figure. :scratch:

When you say, "from Father," do you mean from this particular priest?

Another possibility: Were Mr. T's hands clean?

The same priest? No, I meant the celebrant in the parish I happened to be in. In other words, not a diocesan-wide mandate. And unless Timmy managed to get gunk on his hands without staining his brightly-colored clothing, I'd have to say his hands were clean, at least visibly so.

ETA: But other parishioners at Mass this morning received from Father in the hand. :scratch:

When the issue was whether to receive standing or kneeling, the then Prefect for the Congregation of Divine Worship, Cardinal Arinze, unequivocally stated that there should be nobody prohibited, nor reprimanded, about posture for receiving communion. Extrapolating that to hand or mouth, I would think the same would apply.

Father may have the gift of reading souls, as St. John Vianney did, and he knew that Mr. Timmy needed to be taught to receive on the tongue.

Hey, it's possible. :fyi:

Seriously, it might be the simplest way to make sense of what happened. I'm not saying that shows it's correct. I'm just saying who knows...

Far be it from me to argue with you on that one, gherkin. To be honest, that explanation makes the most sense, all things considered.

Banned for agreeing with gherkin.

The only other thing I can think of was that he was holding his hands wrong or reaching to grab the Host or something of that nature.

Which I also wouldn't put past Timmy. I was behind him in the receiving line and was busy bowing at the time, so I didn't see any of it. In fact, I didn't know any of this had happened until after Mass.

Another "that's a stretch" explanation: Timmy looks like another person who Father isn't sure was consuming the Eucharist upon receiving in the hand.

I'm Orthodox in Communion with Rome, not tasteless and taunting.

Wouldn't be a bad idea, however, for you folks to copy us! :wink:

It’s true that the Roman rite has seen great destruction. I wouldn’t be opposed to some organic growth in this area. However, perhaps the East can receive kneeing as that is both a form of adoration and humiliation (beyond merely respect). Hence, objectively superior (not that the Latin rites do it much either).
