I just saw the video and read the article on the gigantic outdoor Mass in the Philippines and the distribution of Holy Communion. I stopped receiving in the hand about 6 or 7 years ago, I really cannot remember. I do not attend N.O. Masses, and lately I even try to stay away from churches that have the N.O. I will not take the chance of stepping on even the smallest particle of our Lord. I know all the zaniness that goes with some of these Masses but the passing of the Sacred Host from hand to hand to the back of the throng is UNACCEPTABLE!!! The Pope, the Vatican, everybody involved in this fiasco should learn a fast hard lesson and the only answer is NO MORE DISTRIBUTING OF COMMUNION AT THESE MASSES. There is absolutely no justification that I can think of to allow this to happen. 'The people come and they want to receive our Lord.' Just tell them that it is not possible in this setting. We cannot have our Lord falling onto the ground and into the mud of Manila!!!!!!!! I'm saddened to the depths of my soul for Holy Mother Church. This really is too much. Stupid people dancing in the aisles, loud folk/rock music, bad unintelligible sermons, etc, I try not to comment on that 'stuff'. But horrible Communion distribution, I cannot be quiet.
Pray for Her, our Holy Church, and plead for intercession from Heaven.
