That’s just one of the tips Taylor Marshall is offering for receiving communion on the tongue — a practice that is hardly taught anymore, but that the pope seems to favor.
On any given Sunday, when I’m distributing the Body of Christ, I will give communion to about 50 or 60 people at each mass. I will encounter a dozen, or less, who receive on the tongue. I never see children do it.
So, for those who want to give it a try, what’s the best way to master the art of communion-on-the-tongue?
And, if you really want to be pro-active, do what kids used to do when I was growing up: practice with a Necco wafer.
