It was decided that the confirmands would receive Holy Communion under both species, by intinction. What happened was, at the rehearsal prior to the confirmation Mass, I asked them to practice sticking out their tongues to receive. In our parish, the universal norm of receiving on the tongue has long since been phased out by the disobedience-gained indult of receiving in the hands. So most of them would not know how to receive it on the tongue.
The little practice exercise scared me and frightened of any possible sacrilege occurring, I asked Fr. Mark whether we can practice using unconsecrated hosts and he kindly gave his permission. So, after the practice session, my fears were allayed somewhat and on the actual day, under the steady hands of His Lordship the Bishop and the watchful gaze of Fr. Ross, everything went smoothly.
