A Holy Encounter
One issue we spoke of -- Communion in the hand. (Communion in the paw." as Caveman says.)
"To touch the sacred species and to distribute them with their own hands is a privilege of the ordained, one which indicates an active participation in the ministry of the Eucharist." -- Pope John Paul II, 1980 Dominicae Cenae end of paragraph 11.
We agreed on the need for priests to be men of prayer, spending time praying the Divine Office, the Holy Rosary, and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Before I left, I spent some time before the Blessed Sacrament in his tiny chapel. I thanked the Lord for bringing us together. We parted promising to pray for one another. We will meet again. Deo gratias.
