WATCH: Traditional Catholics Not Welcome in Bishop Stika’s Diocese

In a recent Twitter post, the Bishop of Knoxville, Tennessee, Richard Stika,  threatened to have people who request communion on the tongue to be removed from the premises.

Many Catholics consider reception of communion in the hand to be irreverant. As we have pointed out before, no bishop has the authority to deny Catholics reception of Holy Communion on the tongue. Bishop Stika is clearly overstepping his authority.

TAKE ACTION: Contact Bishop Stika and respectfully ask him to correct his error. Please also be sure to pray for him.
