At Madison Chrism Mass, Bishop Morlino begins appeal for priests to encourage Communion reception kneeling and on tongue

A year ago, Bishop called for all tabernacles to be in church and in the center of the sanctuary. Last Fall, as part of the Bishop’s overall plan to add sacred beauty and reverence to all Masses in his diocese, Bishop Morlino encouraged all of his priests to strongly consider Cardinal Sarah’s call to offer the Mass ad orientem. Bishop Morlino then announced he would, from now on, be offering all of his Masses ad orientem.

Now, during last evening’s Chrism Mass, Bishop Morlino concluded his homily by appealing to all of his priests in his diocese to strongly encourage their parishioners to begin receiving Communion on the tongue while kneeling, beginning this September.

We had a priest not even a year ago literally tell us that receiving Communion kneeling was "from the devil."  (Oh don't worry, he was mostly addressing children).  Although it seems like Bishop Morlino ought not be the only bishop encouraging Eucharistic piety, it is certainly welcome every time he exhorts the faithful.
