Cardinal Nichols opts for spiritual communion on Good Friday
April 13, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: During a livestreamed Good Friday service, Cardinal Vincent Nichols of Westminster declined to consume the Eucharist, explaining that in solidarity with the many Catholics unable to receive Communion because of the national quarantine, he would instead make a spiritual communion. (To complete a valid Mass the priest-celebrant must receive Communion. But the Good Friday liturgy is not a Mass.)The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
