Introibo Ad Altare Dei: unless ye become like little children, ye shall not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. A good reason to kneel for Holy Communion: to learn to become like the little ones of the Gospel; to prepare ourselves to receive the Word. For those who insist that "standing for Communion is symbolic of being raised up in Christ": if this is an actual concern, then doesn't *kneeling* for Communion and then standing up to return to one's pew communicate that far more effectively?
