GIRL KNEELS AS SHE RECEIVES COMMUNION FROM POPE

A girl kneels as she receives Communion from Pope Benedict XVI during a Mass celebrating the Feast of Corpus Christi, outside the Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome May 22. The four dozen people who received Communion from Pope Benedict XVI on the feast of the Body and Blood of Christ received the Eucharist on the tongue while kneeling. Vatican officials said the gesture does not mark a permanent change in papal liturgies, but highlighted the solemnity of the feast and a connection to Mass practices in the past.
