I hope that someone can help me with the following question:
I read that our holy father Benedict XVI would prefer to distribute communion on the tongue and to people who are kneeling, which is great to hear, and as i understand it rightly that we can receive the communion either on the tongue or in the hand.
But i also read that our holy father confirmed the neocatechumenal way and sees this the NW as a gift of the Holy Spirit, so our holy father is very supportive and positive of the NC.
In our church in the Netherlands they have also a neocatechumenal way group and what i understood is that they only give communion in the hand and not on the tongue.
First of all, i don’t understand how our holy father whom refers and holds dearly to communion in the tongue, confirmed the NC whom only practise communion in the hand while sitting and were you can’t take communion in the tongue while kneeling.
Any thoughts ?
