My dear friends in Christ,

Some of may recall that about a year ago I sent along a story about the change made by our POPE on the most-appreciate manner of receiving Holy Communion. His Holiness determined that he would only distribute the Eucharist to those 1. Kneeling 2. Receiving Holy Communion on the tongue. He explained that this is Our God in person that we are receiving and that these conditions are therefore the MOST APPROPRIATE.

Today I share similar teaching from the #2 Person of the Roman Curia; His Eminence Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera; prefect [head of] the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.

“When asked how Catholics should receive Holy Communion? His Eminence responded thus: “It is simply to know that we ARE before God Himself and that we are undeserving”, I recommend that all Catholics “receive communion on the tongue while kneeling”, noting that this “is the sign of adoration that needs to be rediscovered. I think the entire Church needs to receive Communion while kneeling.”

“In fact“, he added, if one receives while standing , genuflection or a PROFOUND bow [deep and slow] should be made and this s\is NOT HAPPENING. “If we trivialize Communion, we trivialize everything.”

So now the Holy Father AND the second highest position of authority are telling us ALL, the same thing.

God Bless,
Pat
