Hand Communion almost eradicated at Pope Francis' 15 November Episcopal Ordination Mass

The Holy Father  and MSGR Marini seem to have gotten the message out.  There were quite a number of kneeling communicants,  many, many people, including apparent seminarians receiving on the tongue and no good clear camera shots of anyone who took the Host in their hand.

Additionally, it was a very solemn Liturgy with great big Benedictine candlesticks on the altar!

I have been frustrated by some of the papal liturgies, and the flagrant defiance of the Pope's 'no-hand-Communion' instruction which has been in force, but not enforced by ministers of Holy Communion.  I hope and pray that the Pope's approach continues to promote solemnity and adoration!!
