When JPII came to Boston in 1979, he celebrated a huge open air Mass, in the rain, on Boston Common. A young boy went to receive Holy Communion from him, and the Holy Father had a rather bewildered look, and gave him communion on the tongue. I’m not sure if any film of this still exists. Now you can’t receive on the tongue at St. Peter’s? We are primed for punishment, is all I can say.
