Three Questions about Communion in the Hand

This is a syndicated post from The Chant Café. [Read the original article...]

  1. Does the practice promote eye contact? If so, what are the theological reasons for and against close eye contact between the communicant and the minister at the moment of Communion?
  2. Is there a increased likelihood that small particles will fall to the floor? If so, does this diminish devotion to the Blessed Sacrament? 
  3. Is the Eucharist something that one takes to oneself, or that one receives? Explain.
