New Bishop in UK bans kneeling for Communion???

This news comes by way of the May 3rd 2009 'Catholic Action UK' blog.

>>>>After ticking off a communicant for kneeling to receive Holy Communion, Bishop Drainey of Middlesbrough had the Chair of the Bishop's Council for Liturgy, Fr Gerard Robinson, write as follows:

'Approaching the altar, if one opts to kneel on receiving Holy Communion, rather than showing reverence by means of the communion procession, one is drawing attention to oneself rather than allowing all the attention and reverence be focused on the presence of our Blessed Lord in the Eucharist.' <<<< http://catholicactionuk.blogspot.com/2009/05/bishop.html

How has K. C. missed this???

  1. Why not ban people from dressing as individuals in church too? Maybe the Bishop could suggest that we dress in potato sacks? Or better yet, don't turn up at all?

    Insanity.
