From our choir director/organist, Nelda Chapman's iPhone at Pope Benedict's Epiphany Mass. AH, AWE ORIENTEM!
This is the Rite of Holy Communion. Please note that our Holy Father distributes Holy Communion to the deacons kneeling and by way of intinction so dreaded by some Catholic elitists. Please note also that most of the congregation are receiving Holy Communion on the tongue even when they present their hands and one priest is making the sign of the cross with the Host before he gives it to the communicant.
In fact at all papal Masses at St. Peter's the common sense approach to receiving both the Sacred Host and Precious Blood is for the deacons to receive by intinction and the concelebrating bishops to approach the papal altar and self-intinct. They don't drink after one another, a very safe and healthy practice!
Please note one other thing the Holy Father has in common with me, a cow lick. My hair in the same place does the same thing when cut too short! :) A good MC should have a clean comb and should have patted that down discreetly of course.
Please note that the Holy Father drops a Host as he distributes to the congregation and the one with the paten does not notice it or attempt to catch it. Tisk, tisk, but the good MC Msgr. Marino see it laying on the kneeler and places it in the ciborium the Holy Father is holding. The choir is singing the official Communion Antiphon.
And someone forgot to tell the men who place the Holy Father's chair in front of the altar after he incenses it, that the Holy Father would not go around the altar to incense it as he has in the past, thus discombobulating these men and delaying the seating of the Holy Father. MC's fault I'd say!
