Schneider: Bishops Use Coronavirus As Pretext To Spread De-Sacralisation

Nobody can be forced to receive Communion on the hand, Bishop Athanasius Schneider writes on Rorate-Caeli.Blogspot.com (February 28).

Commenting on bishops using the coronavirus “as a pretext” to abolish communion on the tongue, he explains that from a hygienic point of view, receiving Communion on the tongue is “certainly less dangerous and more hygienic” than Communion in the hand, “Many pathogens are transmitted through the hands.”

“Many people who come to church and then receive Holy Communion in their hands have first touched door handles or handrails and grab bars in public transport or other buildings.”

Banning Communion in the mouth therefore “constitutes an abuse of authority” to spread “more and more the process of trivialisation and de-sacralisation” of the Eucharistic sacrament.

Schneider underlines that in the Church's 2,000-year history there were no proven cases of contagion due to the reception of Communion.

This ancient holy prayer, left to the above-named monastery, has preserved many places from contagion where it is recited daily with confidence in God and the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It has arrested this scourge in many places.

Stella Coeli

The Star of Heaven that nourished the Lord
drove away the plague of death which the first
parents of man brought into the world. May
this bright Star now vouchsafe to extinguish
that foul constellation whose battles have
slain the people with the wound of death.
O most pious Star of the Sea, preserve us from
pestilence; hear us, O Lady, for Thy Son honours
Thee by denying Thee nothing. Save us, O Jesus,
for whom Thy Virgin Mother supplicates Thee.
V: Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God.
R: That we may be made worthy of the promises
of Christ.

Let us pray

O God of mercy, God of pity, God of benign clemency,
Thou Who hast had compassion on the affliction of Thy
people, and hast said to the angel striking them, “Stop thy
hand;” for the love of this glorious Star, whose breasts
Thou didst sweetly drink as antidote for our crimes,
grant the assistance of Thy grace, that we may be safely freed
from all pestilence, and from unprovided death; and mercifully
save us from the gulf of eternal perdition: through Thee,
Lord Jesus Christ, King of Glory, who livest and reignest,
world without end. Amen.

Schneider is absolutely right here and we can only applaud him. Too bad he doesn't always talk like that.

Honestly, this is not news at all, We all know that the blessed sacrament is heavily under attack by the same church, we are in a den of wolves, very few pastors to defend the sheep.

Athanasius is one of them among other few, but to what avail, when Francis is an anti pope, and the few do not have David's courage to trust in the lord and face Goliath, and kill the Goliath inside the church with …More
Honestly, this is not news at all, We all know that the blessed sacrament is heavily under attack by the same church, we are in a den of wolves, very few pastors to defend the sheep.

Athanasius is one of them among other few, but to what avail, when Francis is an anti pope, and the few do not have David's courage to trust in the lord and face Goliath, and kill the Goliath inside the church with one stone our Lord Jesus who is the cornerstone of the church and who is the truth.

They (the good shepherds) should gather together and face the Goliath with the power of the Holy Spirit and the aid of our Lady.

We need people with valor to face these evils.

"continues recognize antipope francis," ---as does the overwhelming majority of the entire Catholic world, conservative members of the Curia included. Looks like you forgot that, @Thors Catholic Hammer

The many “likes” you give to other posters like tearlach above who also call “francis” an antipope reveal further your selective hatreds for certain posters.
Ultraviolet
Tearlach was focusing on the attack on the Blessed Sacrament which outweighed any errors he made about Pope Francis. Just so you know.

Wow! ...and this from the guy who just got through crying how I follow him around GTV. That screen-cap catching you in a lie really was a gotcha! I could probably use your soreness over it as a space heater! :D

„The ban on Communion in the mouth is unfounded compared to the great health risks of Communion in the hand in the time of a pandemic. Such a ban constitutes an abuse of authority.“
Jungerheld
If they had real concern and an eye for real solutions, all the better to receive communion on the tongue... while kneeling.
Thors Catholic Hammer
The answer to +Schneider’s, who by the way continues recognize antipope francis, concerns is to ensure anybody receiving communion in the hand is for people to use hand sanitizers.
All church’s should have them any way.
Entos
commenting on every post here since January makes you look like a bot. your effectiveness is laughable, and credibility, zero.
