Sacraments 101: Eucharist (how we receive)

Should Catholics receive communion on the hand or on the tongue?  And how exactly are we supposed to do that reverently?  Is there any other acceptable response besides “Amen?”  …and what does “amen” mean anyway?

These questions and more are answered in this edition of “Sacraments 101,” a web video series geared for those who’d like an introduction or refresher course on these important, tangible Catholic experiences of God.

The Church calls the Eucharist the “summit and source of our faith,” so it would seem pretty important to understand the basics about receiving this sacrament when we go to Mass.
