Q & A:
Is it licit to deny a person Holy Communion because they wish to kneel?
No. As stated in Redemptionis Sacramentum, "it is not licit to deny Holy Communion to any of Christ's faithful solely on the grounds, for example, that the person wishes to receive the Eucharist kneeling"

Pontifical Master of Liturgical Ceremonies says Pope Benedict has begun to distribute Holy Communion to the kneeling faithful directly on the tongue, "to render visible the proper attitude of adoration before the greatness of the mystery of the Eucharistic presence of our Lord" [Pope's "chief liturgist" on the "reform of the reform", 1/10]
Good news: Communicants at Cathedral of Lima, Peru now required to receive Holy Communion kneeling, on the tongue; Cardinal states: "The most respectful way of receiving the Eucharist is kneeling and on the tongue. We must recover a sense of respect and reverence due to the Eucharist, because the love to Jesus is the center of our Christian lives. Our souls are at stake." [Selected News Link: 9/21/09]
