Form a reverent queue...

Fr Tim Finigan points out that the new CTS Mass Cards have what he calls a 'rogue instruction.'

Despite amended guidelines pointing out that a sign of reverence be made, such as bowing the head, before receiving communion, and that kneeling is an individual's right, the mass cards say:

Communicants come forward in reverent procession: they receive Holy Communion standing.

I suppose we should be grateful for the capitalisation of Holy Communion...

Regular readers will remember that I am, of course, a great fan of queuing as a sign of reverence.
