Rethinking Communion in the Hand Should Be a Priority in the Church
"With Communion in the hand, a miracle would be required during each distribution of Communion to avoid some Particles from falling to the ground or remaining in the hand of the faithful. Let us speak clearly: whoever receives Communion in the mouth not only follows exactly the tradition handed down but also the wish expressed by the last Popes and thus avoids placing himself in the occasion of committing a sin by negligently dropping a fragment of the Body of Christ."
~ Bishop Juan Rodolfo Laise, San Luis, Argentina, 1997 ~
