Brick by Brick: Reforming the Liturgy

No real surprise here.

Pope Benedict XVI does not want the faithful receiving Communion in their hand nor does he want them standing to receive Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. According to Vatican liturgist, Monsignor Guido Marini, the pope is trying to set the stage for the whole church as to the proper norm for receiving Communion for which reason communicants at his papal Masses are now asked to kneel and receive on the tongue.

Hair-on-fire for the LitWonk crowd--the Rembertines--but for no one who thinks.
