Distributing Holy Communion

  • Has anyone noticed that priests at SSPX chapels don't seem to say the full prayer when distributing Holy Communion to the laity?  I don't go to Mass at SSPX chapels that often anymore, but I did yesterday and I didn't hear the priest say anything at all.  At the SSPX chapel my parents attend, the priests distribute so quickly that there is no way they can be saying the full "Corpus Domini nostri..."  - at least, not for each communicant.  I used to attend an SSPX chapel about 10 years ago and the priests used the full, traditional prayer then.  Is this another subtle change?

  • Yes, I noticed it also with some priests, not all. I find it awful.

  • I have always heard the whole thing said at the 2 SSPX chapels I attend.  Sometimes quietly, sometimes quickly, but I can hear the whole thing.  No, I don't think this is another "subtle change."  Some of these grasping at straws items really take away from the more valid concerns, in my opinion.  Not that not saying the words isn't (triple negative) a concern . . . but trying to tie everything to "the changes" is quite entertaining to me.

  • There were many, many priests from before the Council who mumbled through a Low Mass in 25 minutes and said just "Corpus Domini"... it is not new.

    Being born in 1951 and having been an altar server back in the day, what JezusDeKonig says is correct.

  • I don't think the priest technically is obligated to say it out loud.  So the fact that you only hear part of the prayer is not wrong.

    I do "think" the priest is obligated, for if he was not, no priest would be saying it by now, and practically all trad priests I have received communion from have said something, some complete and clear, others partial and some mumbling who knows what. 

    My old trad priest, ordained in 1951, told me they need to say it complete but not for each person, so they might go through 1-3 people to say it all.
