Posture after receiving Communion
Question from Sandra on 9/11/2013:

I kneel to pray after receiving Communion. We have a new priest who is asking all to continue standing after Communion as a sign of oneness in the community. I'd really like your input.

Answer by Catholic Answers on 9/11/2013:

Sandra--

The priest can ask, but you are not required to comply. You are free to kneel if you wish. If Father says anything about it, just say politely, "Father, some of us are not able to remain standing after Communion" (you don't have to explain why).
