It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired. I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue. I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe. I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great.....

OFFICIAL: Communion On Tongue Cannot Be Denied Because Of Swine Flu
THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: It's official. The H1N1 (Swine Flu) virus is no excuse for denying a faithful Catholic communion on the tongue. So all of these parishes and diocese that have attempted to do that are now in violation of canon law, and are in direct opposition to the Vatican. The final statements of the letter indicate the Vatican will take corrective measures with any priest or bishop who denies communion on the tongue for this reason.
If you should find yourself in a parish, where people are being denied communion on the tongue because of the H1N1 (Swine Flu) outbreak, click on the image of the letter above, print out a copy, and share it with you pastor immediately. That should be enough. However, if the matter is not quickly resolved, write a letter explaining the problem to your local bishop and CC the Vatican.
