Papal Mass: Communion in the Hand Refused
At this years Christmass Mass by Pope Benedict XVI the priests who were giving Communion refused communion in the hand.
[kreuz.net, Vatican] At this years Midnight Mass in the St. Peter's Basilica, there was no hand communion.
Father Z at wdtprs.com from an Italian priest in Rome who wrote:
In a change to former practice, those distributing Holy Communion at the Holy Father’s Mass tonight were told that ‘at all Papal Masses Communion is to be given only on the tongue.’ The usual statement that Prelates receive in the same way as the Laity remained.
