    Yes you have it. There is really nothing to add but the brevity of you reply requires acceptance of the teaching of the Church. As St Thomas said Neither do I wish to be obstinate in my opinions, but if I have written anything erroneous concerning this sacrament or other matters, I SUBMIT ALL TO THE JUDGEMENT AND CORRECTION OF THE HOLY ROMAN CHURCH, in whose obedience I now pass from this life.

    Great article… though I might add that placing your dominant hand on the bottom provides greater dexterity when transferring the Host to your mouth, thus decreasing the opportunity to drop it.

    Apparently they in fact stopped this practice back in the early days of the Church: http://www.churchmilitant.com/video/episode/communion-in-the-hand?

    As for why we do it now… it seems there’s quite a history behind how we suddenly have permission for it these last couple years, which Church Militant describes…
