From Edward Pentin at the National Catholic Register:
‘…It [the Rome conference this Saturday aimed at reestablishing the rebirth of Eucharistic devotion - TC] comes after around 11,000 people signed an international petition to say they wanted to receive Jesus in the Eucharist in this “traditional way,” one “more suitable to express utmost devotion.”
They asked that the possibility of receiving Holy Communion on the tongue and kneeling be guaranteed and that the distribution of the Eucharist by the laity be prohibited.
The petition was sent as an open letter to Church authorities, asking them to act on this ‘legitimate request and will of the Catholic people.’…”
An English translation of the text of the petition (launched in January, 2018), along with links detailing the original launching, can be found here. The conference, organized by the lay group ‘United With Jesus in the Eucharist Through the Most Holy Hands of Mary,’ will take place at 6 p.m., Oct. 5, in the conference hall of the Church of Santo Spirito in Sassia, Rome.

Curate, ut valeatis!
