Bologna Archbishop bans hand Communion

Well! Yesterday K. C. featured a U. K. Bishop banning kneeling during Holy Communion. [In my book, such a prelate has earned the name 'papita', the diminutive of the Spanish for pope, 'papa'...er uh except that 'papita' means 'potato chip'.]

Today we have a Don Camillo. A hero! Archbishop Caffarra of Bologna, Italy. The Archbishop has banned hand Communion in the large churches of his archdiocese.

Archbishop Caffara moves in the pope's direction; Bishop Drainey of Middlesbrough moves away. Bishop Edmund Carmody, along with the New Zealand bishops and those of Mexico, contradicts the Church's norms on Communion. How long will must we see this zig-zagging? Pray for reconciliaton and an end to confusion!

Thanks to Te-Deum blogspot for the text of Archbishop Caffarra's letter.
