Archbishop forbids Communion in the hand

The Archbishop of Kampala has forbidden receiving Holy Communion in the hand.
In a decree issued on Saturday, 1 February 2020, Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga wrote: “It is forbidden to distribute or to receive Holy Communion in the hands. Mother Church enjoins us to hold the Most Holy Eucharist in the highest honor (Can. 898). Due to many reported instances of dishonoring the Eucharist that have been associated with reception of the Eucharist in the hands, it is fitting to return to the more reverent method of receiving the Eucharist on the tongue.”
