Sure We both only a year ago really got closer to God, her with a retreat and me with a much needed confession. As time progressed we developed a real love and devotion to the Eucharist. Then we saw people kneeling to receive (her at a Mass, me on EWTN) and it struck us as perfect and beautiful - that they were unafraid and humble, not attracting attention to themselves, and it was the perfect expression of our spirituality and devotion. Slowly God pushed us to do this, and it go to the point that we couldn’t bear it any more (we struggled between wanting to, and then not wanting to be showy). So we both tried it out at a daily Mass and were just blown away! As planned, we had just wanted to try it out, and perhaps return to doing it the old way, but God scrapped our plans and now we receive the way He wants us to :heaven:
Btw we just met less than a week ago (we became friends over witnessing an awful and hellish liturgical abuse, and an equally irreverent Mass - we wrote to the archbishop too!!!) and we have the same story for almost all of our spiritual life, with the exception of her going to a peaceful OF and me at the EF (I made her swear that she’d check one out though!)
Also worth mentioning is that I knew little of, and she knew nothing of, the TLM or the tradition of kneeling and receiving on the tongue. And also, both of us started receving on the tongue almost randomly, me based on a little nudge I felt in line to receive, and her because also out of nowhere she didn’t feel worthy to touch the Eucharist. We both agree that God does things to us that we only understand later - such as how we receive. We both firmly believe that the Holy Spirit led us to do this. How ironic that it ends up being the traditional way? Hm…
Is this like your story too?
