ROME. A proposed Vatican document on liturgical norms was sent back to its drafting committee after cardinals and bishops raised some objections and encouraged some changes.

Among other things, the draft presented to consulting prelates in June reportedly discouraged the distribution of Communion under the forms of both bread and wine and said altar girls were permissible only for a good reason.

The Rome-based magazine Jesus, a publication of the Pauline Fathers, reported Sept. 22 that it had obtained a copy of the June draft.
