Communion in the hand was one of many changes to the liturgy to make it more appealing to non-Catholics.

Meanwhile, communion in the hand was condemned for hundreds of years.

Nope nothing’s changed folks. Nothing to see here.

Jesus didn't stuff any bread into anyone's mouth...

I would guess that the intent of the current procedure is to have the bread be a little too holy to put into the average person's hand; must only be handled by clergy...

I keep receiving communion with my tongue, usually.
I DO take it with my hands when the Eucharistic minister who's giving it out is someone I don't like. Ah me.
