One Priest's Perspective on Communion in the Hand

Pope Benedict could issue an order that Communion must be received on the tongue, with communicants kneeling and the use of a paten.  but how would he enforce it? 

Well, he doesn't have to enforce it.  He just says this is the case.  God will enforce it at judgment.

Quote:the ideal reform would be if the faithful demanded a return to Communion on the tongue.

Actually, I think that is the worst thing if you mean actually demand something of the bishops in a way that challenges their authority directly.  We should reject their errors and make our needs known, but Alinsky-type tactics don't belong in the Church.

Avoiding the NO altogether sends a message when the TLM is full and their pews (and coffers) are empty.
