Bishop Athanasius Schneider, ORC, distributes holy Communion at the altar rail in Assumption Grotto during a 2008 visit to the parish. People at the parish choose to receive Communion kneeling, and on the tongue. Bishop Schneider is the author of the book, Dominus Est in which he takes a look at how early Christians received Communion, and shares a testimonial from his childhood where he had to make his First Communion in secrecy behind the Iron Curtain.

The Italian, Vatican journalist, Sandro Magister, has an excellent article in the English section of his blog on kneeling for holy Communion.  Here is his summary paragraph:
