I got some really nice feedback from via e-mail:
After being a Protestant for many years I was confirmed into the Catholic church 5 years ago…. I have always struggled with the communion issue–in the hand or by mouth… your PodCast gave the best convincing arguement I have ever heard on why it was better to receive by mouth. So I have been partaking by mouth for the past week.
Apparently I made the right decision as I was spiritually attacked all last week, which I endured without discouragement. I will pass your podcast along to my friends that they may listen and be informed. This will also help me in my spiritual growth as a lay Discalced Carmelite.
May God Bess you…I pray for you and for all priests daily.
This nice note from a kind reader has motivated me simply to repost my PODCAzT about Communion in the hand, in case some new visitors to WDTPRS haven’t seen it:
We tackle a thorny issue: Communion in the hand.
To help us drill into this practice, which we can only hope will diminish over time, we have the help of comments by His Excellency Archbishop Malcolm Ranjith, Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments.
We also will hear from Thomas E. Woods Jr., in his fairly new book, Sacred Then and Sacred Now: The Return of the Old Latin Mass.
