Does your church have stained glass windows?

Alas, I've been to a few.

Now ask if your church has a communion rail.

My church - prior to the current renovation - did not have much in the way of SGWs. Not sure if that will change when the renovation is complete.

in answer to your question, mine does... a combination of modern art garbage (that i just found out in the last couple weeks was supposed to be some kind of representation of the Trinity) and some decent stained glass that was added when we completed our expansion

None of the Catholic churches in Morgantown have communion rails. I suspect my parish's current building NEVER did - it's one of those "modern" church buildings, constructed in the mid-1960s.

Our stained glass is pretty horrible....straight out of the late 1950's. Anyone who has seen graphic design from those days will recognize the style. I often drop by St Bernadette's. It has abstract stained glass, which should be even more horrible, but it somehow works with the interior of that church.

But I prefer very traditional stained glass.

The parish I've attended the past few weeks, The Church of the Assumption, has three Masses each Sunday. 8:00 am is TLM, and 4:30 pm is Syro-Malabar. I know that they use the Communion Rail at TLM and Jack3 would be able to attest to whether or not they're used in the Syro-Malabar rite (next time Siggy comes up for a visit, we're going to try to attend that Mass). I've been going to the 11:00, which is NO, but uses the rails (there are four EMHC's with chalices, two standing at an angle at each end of the rails). The funny thing is that the line seems to move more quickly and orderly by using the rails rather than having each communicant come up to the priest (there is no deacon) to receive the Precious Body.

The stained glass windows of Chartres Cathedral in France are almost 1,000 years old.

afaik, Eastern Churches perceive standing as a sign of respect, and hence this posture is traditionally used by the faithful who approach Holy Communion.

and, afaik, the "use" of the Communion rail you are referring to would be to kneel at and to get up. So, I don't think it would be used for that; nonetheless, I don't know if kneeling-and-on-the-tongue is practiced there.

However, Syro-Malabar Church buildings often have rails which show separation the Mad'baha (Sanctuary) from the Hykla (Nave?).

And, if you would attend a Syro Malabar Mass...... don't expect a magic oasis.

My impression from reading here is that they all disappeared during recovation (if that is what it was called and if that is how it is spelt). And that the current practice is not to serve at them. You can probably guess that I haven't seen any in my city.

Good to know they still are in use.

We have a communion rail and use it, as well as a houseling cloth, but we don't have any stained glass. Tiny chapel.
