CWN Editor's Note: Priests in England’s Birmingham Oratory have said that they will comply with an order from Archbishop Bernard Longley forbidding the distribution of Communion on the tongue, but “are praying and hoping that this instruction will be rescinded as soon as possible.” The Oratory explained that in the Extraordinary Form, which they celebrate regularly, Communion in the hand is not allowed.
