To receive Holy Communion reverently in the hand, we create a throne with our hands. If you are right-handed, rest your left hand on your right hand. If you are left-handed, rest your right hand upon your left hand. The minister will say "The Body of Christ," and you will respond by saying "Amen." Since it is not appropriate to reach out to take the host from the minister's hands, the minister will lay the host in the palm of whichever of your hands is on top after you follow the instructions above. Then, please use your other hand to put the host in your mouth. You should immediately consume the Eucharist before moving to return to your seat in the church.
By following this guidance when we receive Holy Communion in the hand, we demonstrate our belief that the host is the Body of Christ and, thus, show our devotion to our Lord.
