Church Revolution in Pictures

Self-Communion in the PhilippinesFirst, it was Communion kneeling and on the tongue, as it should be; then, it became Communion standing and on the tongue; next, it went to Communion standing and in the hand. All these steps suppose a priest or at least a Eucharistic minister to give Communion to the faithful.
Now, we are facing a new step in the liturgical revolution: the introduction of self-Communion by the faithful.
The improprieties/profanations are these:
- Laypeople touch the sacred species, a practice that should be restricted to consecrated hands;
- The priest cannot control who is receiving the Eucharist;
- This practice allows blasphemies and profanations to be made by enemies of the Church as well as scandalous sinners;
- Laypeople including women enter the presbytery, which should be reserved to priests and his acolytes;
- Women and men are inappropriately dressed;
- Women do not wear veils to receive Communion.
This practice was also introduced in Italy, as can be viewed in this clip. From these experiences we can suppose that a new step of the Conciliar Revolution is being tested so that it can be introduced everywhere.
