Petition to the Holy Father against receiving communion in the hand
#1

Two Australian priests have started an online petition to the Holy Father to restore Communion on the tongue as normal practise.

The Petition

Your Holiness,

We are convinced of the great spiritual harm inflicted on the Catholic faithful, and the profanation of the Blessed Sacrament that often occurs by the practice of Communion received on the hand.

We implore Your Holiness to personally intervene to restore once again the normative practice of reception of Holy Communion on the tongue alone.

It is surprising that this has originated in Australia, which is becoming more liberal every day, but not surprising are the majority of  comments attached to the article  deriding this inititative.
