“The Pope is not an absolute monarch whose thoughts and desires are law. On the contrary: the Pope’s ministry is a guarantee of obedience to Christ and to his Word. He must not proclaim his own ideas, but rather constantly bind himself and the Church to obedience to God’s Word, in the face of every attempt to adapt it or water it down, and every form of opportunism.”
— His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI (11 May 2005)

From The 1400s • Communion Kneeling

A beautiful image from an Austrian manuscript produced around 1450AD :

446 Holy Communion


The Traditional Latin Mass uses the paten, and Holy Communion is received kneeling on the tongue … but very few parishes use that white cloth. I believe it’s still (technically) prescribed.
