I’ve been thinking a lot about receiving COTT, mostly because of what I’ve been reading here on the forums. Also, my brother has been attending a parish that is more traditional, where you kneel and receive on the tongue. Based on his positive experience, I decided to take the plunge.
At Mass today, I decided to go for it. I always sit on the side where I receive from the priest. I just went up with my hands folded, opened my mouth, and put my tongue out. (Not too far.;)) It seemed so natural and easy; I think I had built up some worry about dropping the Host, or not opening my mouth enough, but it was so easy. It did seem more reverent, too; more like I was being fed, rather than feeding myself, if that makes any sense.
I’m going to make it a point to receive this way from now on, I think. Just thought I’d share my positive first experience. Maybe it’ll encourage someone else to do it.
