Question. Can the faithful legitimately received Holy Communion kneeling?

Answer.  To this end, it is perhaps useful to respond to your inquiry by repeating the content of a letter that the Congregation for Divine Worship recently addressed to a Bishop in the United States of America from whose Diocese a number of pertinent letters had been received. The letter states: “…while this Congregation gave the recognitio to the norm desired by the Bishops’ Conference of your country that people stand for Holy Communion, this was done on the condition that communicants who choose to kneel are not to be denied Holy Communion on these grounds. Indeed, the faithful should not be imposed upon nor accused of disobedience and of acting illicitly when they kneel to receive Holy Communion.”
