Cardinal Offers Guidance on Receiving Communion, Urges Correction of Liturgical Abuses
“On the tongue and while kneeling”
California Catholic Daily

Lima, Peru (CNA) -- Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera, prefect of the Vatican's Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, has recommended that Catholics receive Communion on the tongue, while kneeling.

“It is to simply know that we are before God himself and that He came to us and that we are undeserving,” the cardinal said in an interview with CNA during a recent visit to Peru. His remarks came in response to a question on whether Catholics should receive Communion in the hand or on the tongue.

He recommended that Catholics “receive Communion on the tongue and while kneeling.” Receiving Communion in this way, the cardinal continued, “is the sign of adoration that needs to be recovered. I think the entire Church needs to receive Communion while kneeling.”

“In fact,” he added, “if one receives while standing, a genuflection or profound bow should be made, and this is not happening.”

“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, as we sing in a hymn in Spanish,” said Cardinal Canizares.

In response to a question about the liturgical abuses that often occur, Cardinal Canizares said they must be “corrected, especially through proper formation: formation for seminarians, for priests, for catechists, for all the Christian faithful.”

Such a formation should ensure that liturgical celebrations take place “in accord with the demands and dignity of the celebration, in accord with the norms of the Church, which is the only way we can authentically celebrate the Eucharist,” he added.

“Bishops have a unique responsibility” in the task of liturgical formation and the correction of abuses, the cardinal said, “and we must not fail to fulfill it, because everything we do to ensure that the Eucharist is celebrated properly will ensure proper participation in the Eucharist.”

Relics of St John Vianney (Curé d'Ars)

Pèlerinage FSSP de rentrée à Ars, 18-19 IX 2010

This photo took my breath away. It's picture of a Holy Mass celebrated before the incorruptible relics of Saint John Marie Vianney (the famous "Curé d'Ars"), patron of Catholic priests.

Saint John Vianney offered himself as priest for the salvation of souls. He spent at least 11 or 12 hours a day in the confessional during winter, and up to 16 to 18 in the summer. By 1855, the number of pilgrims seeking him had reached twenty thousand a year. The also popularized devotion to Saint Philomena (click her for a great intro sermon on St Philomena) who was his special patroness. He died a holy death at the age of 73 in the year 1859.

Saint John Vianney, pray for us and especially for our priests.
