Communion in the hand?

Here is a great video on how we should be receiving Communion....
Please take a moment and listen.


  1. We love Michael Vorris!

    At daily Mass, our priest is not thrilled about Communion on the tongue (body language), so I always grab Abigail so as to have an "excuse"! HA! (I laugh so I won't cry!)

  2. interesting to hear this...I never knew, but I loved in Guatemala how many of the faithful there receive on the tongue. I need to try, I always receive in hand. I wonder why they don't teach children in pre-communion classes aren't taught this??

  3. when Lucia received the Eucharist from the angel at Fatima, she received kneeling, on the tongue. Considering that angels have perfect knowledge, the angel would not of placed it on her tongue if it had been displeasing to God

    "You must not take the Body of My Son in your hand! You open the door for the entrance of evil spirits to defile My Son's Body! The consecrated fingers of a duly-ordained man of God, the priest, shall place My Son into your mouth, and you must absorb His Body with goodness and love." - Our Lady, March 22, 1975
    "A priest is a man of God, chosen solely from the world to be a representative of the Son of God.... As a man of God, he brings to you the Body and Blood of your Savior.
    "I tell you, my brothers and sister, that none shall take in his or her hands the purified Body of your Savior! Only the consecrated fingers and hands of the representative of Christ the Lord shall give and bring this gift to mankind!" - St. Theresa, October 2, 1975
    "We ask and repeat that no one handle in unconsecrated hands the Body of My Son! It will be defiled and discarded, unless only a legally-ordained priest, a man of God, with purified fingers of the Holy Spirit, give the Body and Blood of My Son to each one under his care." –

  4. Hi! I am asking Catholics to sign this very important petition, set up by the survivors' network, SNAP. Thank you!!

    USCCB - "Stop the legal bullying!"

    As a member of America's Catholics, we urge you to publicly denounce, and stop, the bullying tactics used by bishops and church defense lawyers against those seeking help from the support group SNAP, including victims of abuse by clerics, witnesses, whistleblowers, police, prosecutors and journalists.
