Should Catholics receive communion on the hand or on the tongue? And how exactly are we supposed to do that reverently? Is there any other acceptable response besides “Amen?” …and what does “amen” mean anyway? The Church calls the Eucharist the “summit and source of our faith,” so it would seem pretty important to understand the basics about receiving this sacrament when we go to Mass.
The video below from Catholic Communication Campaign, Sacraments 101, provides the answers to these questions and more!
