Bishop of Padre Pio Calls Receiving Communion on the Tongue An “Abuse” (Video)

“Let us try to avoid false spiritualism; I would like to mention one of them because it is of particular concern to me at the moment,” Bishop Franco Moscone said during a January 3 homily in San Giovanni Rotondo where the sanctuary of Padre Pio is located.

Moscone is bishop of Manfredonia-Vieste-San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy. “I know that people keep asking for Communion in their mouths,” an angry Moscone continued.

He underlined that Covid-19 is NOT the reason why grabbing Communion with the hand should be imposed, because for him there is a “a very clear biblical argument” for it as Christ himself said, “Take and eat it” – he didn’t say, “Swallow it.” “With what do you take?" - Moscone asked and replied triumphantly, "You take it with your hands.”

But these arguments are poor. From Moscone's “swallow" argument, one could also conclude that we should carry the host home. Further: The Greek word for “take” also means “receive.” However, Moscone concludes from his arguments that receiving Holy Communion [on the tongue] is an “abuse."

Paul VI’s 1969 Instruction Memoriale Domini on the Manner of Distributing Holy Communion calls receiving Communion [on the tongue] a “centuries-old tradition” which should “certainly be preserved."

That "abuse" just happens to be the de facto method of reception in the Catholic Church. Now the "exception" has become the rule and now its supporters are behaving like the proverbial cuckoo, killing the chicks who actually belong in the nest.

The bishop will not tolerate any reverence toward Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.

True, Your Excellency, but Our Lord stated that to the apostles. The apostles were the first bishops.

@Ultraviolet Don't be a Jew hater Ultraviolet, even though Evil Marxist Jews have been subversive and extremely destructive to the United States of America for example, such as the Marxist Jews who who robbed Americans of their personal and national security: the subversive Rosenbergs for the murderous Marxists in Russia and Jay Pollard the spy for Israel, that Trump just pardoned.
Make sure to differentiate between the good Jews such as: Abraham, Moses, John the Baptist, St. Paul and the Synagogue of Satan: Saul Alinsky, Gloria Steinem, Bob Dylan, Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen, Karl Levi Marx, Mark Zutterberg, Sigmund Shlomo Freud...

My point was E. Michael Jones AND Mohammed are both anti-Semites and wrote fraudlent work. @Pope Innocent lll Please DO try to keep up. :D

I'm charitably giving you credit that you're simply slow instead of pretending to be illiterate just to segue your usual malicious obsession -about- Jews.

St. Thomas Aquinas is very specific on who can and cannot touch Our Lord in the Eucharist.

Like all modernists they love to take the stage with microphone in hand spewing their tripe. Communion in the hand is an abuse and sacrilege. Your argument is weak, and frankly childish. Why not follow Padre Pio's great respect for the Blessed Sacrament and receive kneeling and on the tongue. But you know better than a saint, right?
