Today I attended mass at a neighbouring parish and during communion
the priest did not say, “Body of Christ” once and instead chose to
sing a song. This also meant that no one receiving communion said
I was very bothered by what the priest was doing and I changed lines
and received communion from someone who did say ‘Body of Christ’.
An additional problem I had with the singing was that it didn’t allow
for a quiet time of reflection after receiving the communion.
Is this a liturgically correct option? Personally, it is the first
time I’ve ever seen it.
