I see that Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne of Lima, Peru has forbidden Communion received in the hand. Curiously, he blames the clergy for their “relaxed attitude.” If nothing else, this should make lots of Catholics tense.
At Father Z’s site, the notice is enough to spark the usual discussion not only on reception in the hand, but altar rails, female servers, lay EM’s, and other bugaboos.
This would all be much simpler if the Vatican appointed a single priest, say Fr Z, and told everybody else to just stay home and pray on Sunday. There would be no danger of desecration, irreverence, or even rude parking lot behavior.
