The holy souls and the reception of Communion in the hand and the use of Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers
Maria Simma was very traditional in the beliefs and practice of the Catholic faith--and these views, she stated, was because of what the 'holy souls' had taught her. For instance, she was very much against the reception of Communion in the hand.
According to her, the holy souls taught her that receiving Communion in the hand was offensive to God, and moreover that the Bishops who had pushed for this practice in their Dioceses had committed a grave sacrilege, and would have to pay dearly for this in Purgatory. In fact, the holy souls had allegedly told of one certain Bishop who had to stay in Purgatory until the end of the world, apparently for this very reason. And then she also stated that there is a bishop who is going to have to stay in Purgatory until the permission for Communion in the hand in his diocese is rescinded. To illustrate this point, she would state that none of the Popes (so far) will give Communion in the hand, nor have they ever permitted it in the diocese of Rome (the pope is the bishop of Rome).
