    Does this mean that the bishop prohibits communion on the tongue explicitly "during" mass? (???)

    He can't do that, but they try to bully priests into doing this. I suspect that it is safer for a priest to not have General Communion as part of Mass and instead give people the option of receiving the Blessed Sacrament afterwards.

    I have no problem with this as this was normal way over 100 years ago. It can also solve a number of the abuses that have become common, due to having General communion as part of Mass.

    Elmar, don't ask. I think he genuinely means well and is following the medical advice he has been given. I am convinced he doesn't want anyone to get sick. I suspect we will all survive until things get back to normal - at least I hope we do.
    Thanked by 1Elmar

    There's a sign on the church door, 'one way' and an arrow pointing in :-) ...
    but no times, and the door was locked :-(

    I am tomorrow to become a godfather.
  • Congratulations! (I'm assuming that you don't mean that you're becoming the head of a crime family.)

    I'm now a godfather, the smell of chrism still on my shoulder! Godson took the descent of the Holy Spirit very calmly. Only thing he didn't like was the chrism also on his chest.

    One upgrade from other, more famous godfathers is that I refrained from ordering a citywide purge-by-assassination of my rival gangs' leadership whilst holding the wee babe. Pat myself on the back for that one.
