At the opening mass of the Youth Synod (October 3), Holy Communion was distributed on the tongue only.
Twitter User “Catholic Sat” reports that Monsignor Guido Marini, the Pontifical Master of Ceremonies, advised the priests not give Communion in the hand under any circumstances.
The TV broadcast of the mass showed how a woman tried to snatch Communion but the priest dodged her. Immediately after the incident the camera moved back to the altar.

@St Cuthburt Mayne Ora pro nobis The so-called New Order of Mass is the worst, although the Mass by the end of the sixties before the NOM, was grievously mutilated with a badly translated Canon (offering the Sacrifice for All rather than many as Pro Multum indicates). A transitional or normative Mass with Communion in the hand, probably already happened in the Low Countries and Germany.
