Mary Teaches Us How To Offer Mass

I found this sermon on the The London Oratory website: Mary Teaches Us How To Offer Mass. Thought it might interest someone out there in the WWW.

Here is a little quote:
I have to say also, in practical terms, how wise the Church was to insist for centuries that we receive our Lord directly onto the tongue. We may recognise that for prudential reasons, the Church allowed communion in the hand in order to prevent the scandal of disobedience from continuing. Nevertheless, considering the infinite gulf between us and our Creator and the awesome privilege of receiving him in communion, surely Mary our Mother would teach us to receive him in the humblest and most reverent way possible.
Could not have said it better myself!
