Eucharist: Guidelines on the Reception of
"As Catholics, we fully participate in the celebration of the Eucharist when we receive Holy Communion. We are encouraged to receive
Communion devoutly and frequently. In order to be properly disposed to receive Communion, participants should not be conscious of
grave sin and normally should have fasted for one hour. A person who is conscious of grave sin is not to receive the Body and Blood of
the Lord without prior sacramental confession except for a grave reason where there is no opportunity for confession. In this case, the
person is to be mindful of the obligation to make an act of perfect contrition, including the intention of confessing as soon as possible
(canon 916). A frequent reception of the Sacrament of Penance is encouraged for all."
