Pope Francis continues making communicants kneel for Holy Communion!

How long has Francis been pope?  How long have my  gloomy traddies predicted impending "balloon masses"?  MSGR Marini being fired?  COMMUNION-ANY-OLD-WAY?    Follow this Youtube link and check out around minutes 1:59 to see how the Holy Father [[still!!]] distributes our Lord --this was in Sunday's Divine Mercy Mass at St. John Lateran....!

I'm glad I didn't wager any of my hard earned $ on these predictions!

It's not too early to assess what has happened over the past 3 weeks... as Father MacDonald on Southern Orders has pointed out

Francis' first two U.S. episcopal appointments come from Bishop Bruskewitz'  diocese of Lincoln.  [] Benedict's Altar arrangement remains...(sour-pusses will assure us that it takes a long time to  remove those 6 candlesticks!...[[Benedict super-glued them to the altar!]] you just wait! )  Pope Francis' style---sicut Father MacDonald-- is Ad Orientem...i.e. soft and non-theatrical....kneeling Communion remains!....Guido Marini remains!

Yes, women's feet were washed and the red shoes are gone....I must ask however, if these things out-weigh Francis' reverence for the Blessed Sacrament?  If the Holy Father had kept the red shoes and not have washed women's feet, but instead had started administering Communion any-old way - as did Bl. J.P.II and Pope Benedict at the beginning of his pontificate--, would that have been a good trade?

Let's continue to pray for the Holy Father!
