Pope John Paul receiving Holy Communion
from Cardinal Ratzinger.

Ben Trovato has drawn attention to a petition requesting the Holy Father to consider removing the indult allowing communion in the hand. You can read about it at his blog but I thought I'd mention it here as well, presuming that some, at least, might want to sign it. I don't really suppose it will have much effect but it does point to a change in attitudes and brings those perceptions to the attention of the Holy See.

You can look at the petition details here:

There is also this site (on my sidebar) that gives some information and views on the manner of receiving Holy Communion.
