Why receiving the Eucharist kneeling is always permissible

In the 2003 edition of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (the governing document for how to celebrate the so-called “Ordinary Form” of the Roman Rite), there was a grudging admission that the faithful could receive kneeling:

The norm for reception of Holy Communion in the dioceses of the United States is standing. Communicants should not be denied Holy Communion because they kneel. Rather, such instances should be addressed pastorally, by providing the faithful with proper catechesis on the reasons for this norm.  (GIRM [2003], n. 160)

Due to a deluge of complaints that had reached the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments from U.S. Catholics, the USCCB was required to change this paragraph in the 2011 edition, where it now reads:

The norm established for the Dioceses of the United States of America is that Holy Communion is to be received standing, unless an individual member of the faithful wishes to receive Communion while kneeling. (GIRM [2011], n. 160)

That’s it – nothing else! So the idea that Catholics should be “catechized” about the norm of standing in order to make them conform to it has been dropped altogether. It is now simply left up to the individual Catholic whether he wishes to stand or kneel. (The same is true of whether to receive in the hand or on the tongue, about which there has never been the same level of controversy.)

From the desk of Fr. Edwin C. Dwyer

From a parish bulletin:

Dear Faithful, I am writing this to address some concerns I have heard as of late about the liturgies at our parish.
Firstly, I want to stress again that the move to more use of traditional chant, and Latin is going to happen at the late Sunday morning Mass. The 4pm on Saturdays, and the 8:30am on Sundays will largely remain with the structure of hymns we currently employ. The aim is to reach out to younger generations who truly desire a greater use of traditional worship, and to Catholics in the area who miss those traditions, and have been on the margins of parish life for decades.
I also want to address the use of incense at Mass at our parish. I did use it during the holidays, and at a handful of Advent Masses. The holidays are a time for greater solemnity, so that is why I employed the incense there. In Advent I had visiting seminarians, and a layman who was liturgically trained by Benedictines before discerning the call to marriage. All wanted to help serve, and I wanted to get used to using incense at our liturgies prior to the holy day celebrations.
So, when will I be using incense in the future? Well, like the more traditional music, I hope to use incense quite regularly at the late Mass on Sundays. At the 4pm Saturday, and 8:30am Masses, I will employ incense major feast days, and only if I have properly trained servers. In other words, you can anticipate no incense at 4pm Saturdays, and 8:30am Sundays, unless it is a major feast day. I will try to give notice in the bulletin of those feast days. As always, I will use incense at every funeral.
I realize that incense can cause allergies, or other bad reactions. I simply ask that folks also keep in mind that flowers, pet fur, cologne, and perfume can, and do cause similar reactions. I am also looking into what places in the church are less subject to the smell of incense, and what types of incense and coals cause fewer negative effects. I know change can be difficult, even if it is only at one Mass, but if we do not reach younger generations I do not see how a much bigger change of this parish closing can be prevented within a generation.
I have had many young folks tell me how excited they are for greater use of tradition at the late Sunday Mass. I ask you all keep that in mind, as we continue to labor for the salvation of souls in Bay City. Through the intercession of Our Lady of Peace, may the Good Lord bless and keep you all the days of your life.

Dominica V “per annum” – 10 Feb 2019

Ant. ad introitum Ps 94, 6-7
Veníte, adorémus Deum,
et procidámus ante Dóminum, qui fecit nos;
quia ipse est Dóminus Deus noster.

Famíliam tuam, quǽsumus, Dómine,
contínua pietáte custódi,
ut, quæ in sola spe grátiæ cæléstis innítitur,
tua semper protectióne muniátur.
Per Dóminum.

Super oblata
Dómine Deus noster, qui has pótius creatúras
ad fragilitátis nostræ subsídium condidísti,
tríbue, quǽsumus,
ut étiam æternitátis nobis fiant sacraméntum.
Per Christum.

Ant. ad communionem Cf. Ps 106, 8-9
Confiteántur Dómino misericórdiæ eius,
et mirabília eius fíliis hóminum,
quia satiávit ánimam inánem,
et ánimam esuriéntem satiávit bonis.
Vel: Mt 5, 5-6
Beáti qui lugent, quóniam ipsi consolabúntur.
Beáti qui esúriunt et sítiunt iustítiam,
quóniam ipsi saturabúntur.

Post communionem
Deus, qui nos de uno pane et de uno cálice
partícipes esse voluísti,
da nobis, quǽsumus, ita vívere, ut, unum in Christo effécti,
fructum afferámus pro mundi salúte gaudéntes.
Per Christum.
