A may 14th Equadoran newspaper article lamenting that 40 years after the Vatican's 'suggestion' to switch to hand Communion, few people in Ecuador are paying attention and most people still receive on the tongue. This is despite the local hierarchy's efforts to get 'up to date.' The priest in the photo is all worried about getting spit on his fingers which he says happens all the time. He thinks hand Communion is better. The lady taking Communion in the hand is a catechist [Where is the ciborium? What kind of staging is this?] . Of course! it is always the 'experts' who want to impose innovations and or skandal.
The article does make mention of Bishop Laise's book 'Communion in the Hand' which lists Satanism as one of the profanation dangers which hand Communion facilitates. The authors refer to Satanism as an 'inconvenience'.
Among other things, the article repeats the oft-heard argument that 'since the disciples took the Eucharist in their hands, it must be ok.' This is the protestant reformers' argument that the medieval church, 199AD to 1520, with its growing appreciation of the Eucharist, made one huge error and departure from pure apostolic Christianity. They anticipated the Church's litugical 'experts' of the 1960's and 70's in that they also were against kneeling before the Eucharist and receiving on the tongue because these practices fortified the Catholic dogma...
...They still do.
..And 'liturgical experts' who repeat this protestant argument are saying in a sneaky way that the protestant reformers were right and the Church was wrong.
