One is tempted to speak unprofessionally and say that the Catholic Church is now run by IDIOTS, but that is not proper. This temptation or movement of the mind, heart and soul to extreme frustration and anger (along with sorrow and sadness), is especially due to seeing the fully unreasonable and surely diabolically inspired practices and actions now in effect, regarding the treatment of the Body and Blood of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Before the Catholic Church made major changes stemming from the great (in upheaval) council of Vatican II (1962-1965), reverence for Jesus Christ was perhaps its strongest characteristic. With lay involvement and altar girls, and women in general now participating in what was once reserved for the priest or one specially consecrated, many acts or sins of irreverence toward Jesus Christ, TRUE GOD AND TRUE MAN, have become the norm.
The ripping out of communion railings and the dashing of the long held or traditional practices and actions (to every detail) - all set in place to help to guard and protect the Infinite Dignity of Jesus Christ, by proper and due Reverence and Devotion and so Fruitfulness when receiving the GREATEST SACRAMENT - done in our modern times when the holding to traditional practices is most needed, is absolutely irrational. There is absolutely nothing to be gained, and the loss is horrific.
This whole set of modern actions which have replaced traditional practices and actions in this regard, we sum up by the principal action COMMUNION IN THE HAND. According to traditional Catholic teachings Communion in the Hand must be declared a SACRILEGE - as John Vennari, editor of Catholic Family News had well written in his article : Truth About Communion in the Hand
