Diocese of Knoxville: Bishop Stika's instructions are that the faithful are not to receive from the chalice, and no"handshake of Peace" --- this is for the month of February, supposedly our peak flu month.
I could go with this all year 'round. We know receiving in either "kind" , we receive the whole living Christ: Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity. Glory and praise to Him.
As for the handshake: that just serves as a distraction, esp.at the school Mass, in my experience.

I agree!! I love my parish but would rather shake hands OUTSIDE, AFTER Mass! Too much chatting goes along with the handshake break! And don't chat until you get OUTSIDE! There is such a din as soon as the priest leaves the altar. Oh, to be blessed with SILENCE!
