Father Altier on Communion in the Hand


A Catholic Mom in Hawaii has up an old homily by Father Altier. It deals with why the Church perfers us to receive the Blessed Sacrament on the tongue instead of in the hand. I do know that there are instructions dating back to the fourth century about how to properly receive in the hand, but I prefer to receive on the tongue, personally.

Anyway, this is food for thought for those of you who aren’t as young-fogey-ish as I am becoming.
