Is there a certain place the Priest celebrant stands to give out Communion or can he go to anywhere in Church? Yesterday he moved a lay distributor where he usually is and went to side aisle. Just wondering.
Nothing in the rubrics requires the priest to distribute from front and center.
Nothing in the rubrics requires him to wear socks, to comb his hair, brush his teeth, take off the red-rubber clown nose or refrain from dancing and singing show tunes.
Some things are self-evident.
Ideally, Father should walk thelength of the communion rail from the Epistle side (liturgical South) to the Gospel side (liturgical North) – then return to start over – bringing the Lord in His anointed hand to the faithful who patiently kneel to receive on the tongue.
As for why this priest switched places… who knows. Maybe he wanted to flag someone down. “Body of Christ… Body of Christ… Body of Christ. See me after… Body of Christ…”. Maybe he thought that, since people usually sit in the same places for Mass, he would have some contact with them that way. Of course the people might be over there because they don’t want contact with that priest. I’m just sayin’
