I have responded to three threads on this the last few months, and done many google searches on "blessings holy communion", etc. and, as far as I can tell, there has been nothing official since Blessings at Holy Communion
[Zenit], of March 24 2009.
BTW, I'm not sure if you noticed in your extract that the statement re "existing laws" refers to "such as No. 2
", even though it appears beside no. 5
, which you included.
Finally, just a personal note on why I bother. It's not because I want to advocate any particular position on the matter. Each time it is has been because a non-Catholic has innocently asked whether they are permitted to (or, in this case), how to, and has been told definitely "No" on the basis of the private letter of 2009, thus giving it an authority which it does not claim . I simply wanted to set their mind at ease that they are permitted to, if the parish priest allows it.
