The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments is apparently preparing a document that is a sort of “how-to” manual for celebrating Mass.
Where sacraments and grace are concerned, it’s rarely a good idea to “do the math.” Many of the distortions and abuses of liturgical history arose precisely from “doing the math.”
Receiving Communion in this way “is the sign of adoration that needs to be recovered. I think the entire Church needs to receive Communion while kneeling.”
From the CNS story: “Cardinal Cañizares said that while the book’s title is provocative, it demonstrates a belief he shares: ‘Participating in the Eucharist can make us weaken or lose our faith if we do not enter into it properly’ and if the liturgy is not celebrated according to the church’s norms. This is true whether one is speaking of the ordinary or extraordinary form of the one Roman rite.’”
