From a reader:
For the first time in almost 40 years I received on the tongue at this evenings vigil Mass. I have been debating for a long time, due to your witness and also that of some faithful friends and relatives. I’m trying to find the words to express what I want to say about it, the best I can do right now is the ‘rightness’ of receiving that way. I just seemed right. We attended a more traditionally minded parish tonight, with a great priest and I guess that’s why I chose tonight. I can’t help but wonder what my pastor will think if/when I present myself that way in my home parish.
Good for you.
The Church’s law right now in most places permits people to receive on the hand. I hope someday that that permission will be rescinded. Until then, I hope many more people will make this decision.
People need to take the matter… ehem… into their own hands.
