A reader sent the following observation.
Apparently during the EWTN re-broadcast of the Holy Father’s Easter Mass, the announcer opined that the reason the Holy Father distributes Holy Communion only to people kneeling is… wait for it… because he is short and it is easier for him that way.
It might be good for him to explain this.
I didn’t see the broadcast of the Mass, being busy with other things. I don’t know if that comment was made or not.
But if it was….
The Holy Father is distributing Holy Communion to people kneeling to give positive reinforcement to a deeper reverence of the One whom we receive.
