I thought you might be interested in the following clever manoeuvre
adopted at St Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal, which I observed at Sunday evening’s Mass. The sung Mass had two priests concelebrating, but when the time came for Communion, only one of the priests came down to distribute the Eucharist. He stood to distribute to those standing, who received in the hand. A large number of people who chose to kneel at the communion rail to receive on the tongue were given the Eucharist by a gaggle of teenaged girls in albs. I’m sure that this leaves Traditionally-minded Catholics confused at the least.
I’m sure they thought they were just accommodating people who wanted to kneel: “Oh those conservatives! They’re never happy!”
