Communion
Question from George on 1/4/2013:

I recently came down with a bad cold and the only incident that I can trace it to is going to Communion and receiving the host on my tongue. The server had touched other people's tongues.

Answer by Catholic Answers on 1/7/2013:

George--

Colds can be caught in any number of ways through daily activities that usually go unnoticed. There is no reason that you should blame the EMHC who placed Communion on your tongue at your own request. If you continue to dislike receiving Communion on the tongue though, then go to Masses where you can choose to receive it in the hand.
