The flu is letting up in some places, at least until the deeps of winter. But the liturgy sideshows over Communion in the hand/on the tongue are just warming up. Note this thread over at Fish Eaters Traditional Catholic Forum. Calgary Bishop F. B. Henry asked the local TLM people to give Communion in the hand. They declined. He pulled the plug on permission for the TLM. They quoted the CDWDS. He wrote:
I am well aware of what the congregation decided but quite frankly, it is not their call. It is mine.
Whoa. That really got the traditionalists mad:
I was going to call him “Mr. Henry” instead of “Bishop Henry”
This is … why it’s a sin to go to a NO Mass
If only it was so easy to defrock the clergy, a SSPX declaration.
The bishop’s original letter is here. I still say adults are reasonable enough to make decisions for themselves on whether to receive Communion and if so, how.
