News almost a week old, but for the record, the Vatican's Prefect for Divine Worship, Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera recently recommended that ALL Catholics receive Communion on the tongue, while kneeling.
As reported by Catholic News Agency (July 28, 2011), the Cardinal said that "It is to simply know that we are before God himself and that He came to us and that we are undeserving."
Now, is that not refreshingly NOT about "we-ourselves-and-us," for a change? What a novel concept: we gather-us-in together at Mass, not to celebrate US, or our "COMMUNITY," but in awe, to let-all-our-mortal-flesh-keep-silence, in adoration, before the majesty of our LORD!
“If we trivialize Communion, we trivialize everything, and we cannot lose a moment as important as that of receiving Communion, of recognizing the real presence of Christ there, of the God who is the love above all loves ..." he declared.
Receiving Communion on the tongue while kneeling, the cardinal continued, “is the sign of adoration that needs to be recovered. I think the entire Church needs to receive Communion while kneeling.” (emphasis added)
Won't the "We Are Church" and "Call to Action" crowds love this!!
