As for crisis in the Church, these times are not the greatest crisis the Church has ever seen.  One only needs to read accurate history in order to know this.

Right.  Uh huh.  If this isn't the greatest, then it's the second greatest.

When was the last time a Pope fabricated a Missal and imposed it worldwide, and saw church attendance plummet, and dissention from the laity, priests, bishops, AND CARDINALS rise like none other?

In the NO Mass you can receive either way, on the tongue or on the hand. In the TLM you can only receive on the tongue, if you went to Communion in a Latin Mass with hands outstreched I wouldn't even want to be witness to the reaction it would get except for the priest to motion for you to leave.

Yes, but that is no argument because we receive by mouth either way.

"Communion in the hand [came]...with the publication of the Dutch Catechism with nobody's permission except the bishops—in effect, in principle separated themselves from the Holy See. One country after another began then to ask for permission, which the Dutch bishops never asked for, permission to receive Communion in the hand. "Behind Communion in the hand—I wish to repeat and make as plain as I can—is a weakening, a conscious, deliberate weakening of faith in the Real Presence.

"In the very, very early Church, Communion was given in the hands. However, as the faith of the Christians weakened in the Real Presence, by the 5th, 6th centuries Communion on the tongue became mandatory—remained mandatory until the present century.

"And the American hierarchy took most—three times, those wanting Communion in the hand kept pushing and pushing. Finally, meantime, I was asked by the vice-president of the Catholic Conference of Bishops to defend Communion on the tongue, which I did. To get enough votes to give Communion in the hand, bishops who were retired, bishops who were dying, were solicited to vote to make sure that the vote would be affirmative in favor of Communion in the hand. Whatever you can do to stop Communion in the hand will be blessed by God.”

Thought all might want to know that SSPX.org just recently published a number of texts related to the topic of Communion in the hand:  http://sspx.org/news/cardinal_burke_glor...erview.htm.

Preserving Christian Publications has also just printed (for the first time in English) Bishop Laise's excellent and well-documented book, Communion in the Hand:  http://sspx.org/miscellaneous/communion_..._laise.htm.

Thanks Romanitas! The whole CITH/EMHC fiasco is a major reason that I just decided to give up on the NO and go to the TLM.

Even at the local Cathedral there are two difficult choices...

- Receive COTT kneeling at the altar rail... from an EMHC!
- Receive COTT/CITH from a priest... standing!

Ach, what a sad mess.

I find it odd that Papa Benedetto doesn't slam a Motu Proprio down about this. It's so ridiculous.
