Well, there was one positive message:
An Eastern prelate, one Italian cardinal and many eastern rite and eastern-european Latin Rite bishops have commented, that the abuse of Communion in the Hand should be banned universally and that there should be a return to Communion on the tongue.
They said satanists thus can easily supply themselves with the Blessed Sacrament to commit sacrilege on it.
And they said COmmunion in the Hand diminished the faith in the Holy Eucharist. Another argument was that it would hinder Ecumenism with the (SCHISMATIC!) Eastern-Orthodox and their respectable liturgies and condemnations of Communion in the Hand.
But what do you expect?
I think the majority will declare these faithful bishops to be "nuts" and "conspiracy obsessed" and "out of touch with reality" for addressing satanism and the diminishing faith in the True Presence due to the abuse.
And why would you change this "glorious innovation" which is supposed to be the "ancient Christian practice" according to a false archeologism?
Do you really think they would condemn Communion in the Hand (an abuse which had spread from the Netherlands and Flanders to the rest of the world since the year 1964), when Pope Benedict XVI himself exclusively gave Communion in the hand in Cologne at the "New Springtime" World Youth Day 2005?
"Are you being more Catholic than the Pope, you nuts from Eastern-Europe?", will be a common liberalist opinion I fear.
After all "archconservative Ratzinger" would not give in to the practice, if it were an abuse, or would he?
The Synod is illustrating once again the deep splits and the deep division within the Modernist church.
Some are moderate, some in between (Benedict XVI) and many are ultra-Modernists and pro-One World Council of Religions.
There have already been calls to turn this synod into a Renewal pastoral Council next year to be able to study the problems more intensively in the home dioceses.
