The priest receives communion first and this is an official rule. There is no deviation from this.

Typically, those handing out Communion, Altar boys, the choir, etc. go next. But I can’t seem to find a reference that this is mandatory. I do not think it is mandatory - it is just custom.

What happens during Communion is the priest, with God’s help, turns the bread into the Body and Blood of Christ and he turns the wine into the Body and Blood of Christ. During transubstantiation the priest uses the words that say he is turning the bread into the Body of Christ, but that does not mean that it is not also the Blood of Christ. Same thing for the wine - he uses the words “this is my Blood”, but it is also the Body of Christ.

Theologically, we know the wine becomes both and the bread becomes both because of:

1 Corinthians 11:27

27 So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord.

The key word above is “or”, leading to a sin against both.

So receiving either “species” (that is the word we use) is sufficient because you receive ALL of Jesus with either one, according to St. Paul. So there is no requirement to receive from the Chalice if you have already received Jesus from what was bread. A large percentage of people do not receive from the Chalice. But since it was present at the Funeral I see know reason they could not have also received from the Chalice. Maybe it was something as simple as they didn’t line up for it.

Thanks for asking the questions you have asked. It is always a blessing to tell people about the Catholic Church.

Thanks for the explanation. We were all very curious about this. It is nice that you can ask a question without seeming disrespectful or mocking. It is nice to have respectful dialogue. That doesn’t always happen around here. Blessings.

Her and Fluke sound like two peas in a pod. Kind of a fluke that they both make national news coming up against the beliefs of the Catholic Church with immorality at about the same time.

Females cannot be priests. Therefore lesbians cannot be priests. Those men who feel they have strong attractions to men are told that they cannot be priests. Those who are openly gay definitely cannot become priests. If someone who is already a priest commits a sexual act then he must repent. If he does not repent and plans on doing it again then he is breaking his priestly oath (e.g. a priest falls in love with a woman and they are planning to continue being intimate). At this point he would be stripped of his priestly duties. Defrocking is the long next step, I believe - just as it is a long process to become a priest.

This filthy girl should have received communion if for no other reason then to cleanse her pathetic soul.

Someone needs to re-read John 4:4-42 and re-learn the lesson of Jesus and the woman at the well so as to be gentler with their tongue (and typing.)

When one receives either the consecrated Host or the chalice, one received the whole, living Christ (Bony, Blood, Soul and Divinity) --- which, incidentally, is what makes this different from cannibalism. With cannibalism, a person is eating dead body parts. With Communion, one receives the whole Christ, living and eternal and personally present.

So one receivces the whole, living Christ even if one receives just a drop from the chalice or a tiny frangment of the consecrated Host.

Why the family did not receive from the chalice, I don't know. Sometimes if a person has an alcohol problem, they just receive the Host. Sometimes if a person has, say, celiac disease, and is allergic to wheat gluten, they receive just the Lord's Blood from the chalice. This is all OK. But I don't know what might have been the reason in their particular case. Blessings to you!

The code word has been sounded from lips of Obozo: unleash the Republicans anti-woman voter campaign. It will help us cover up the eggregious comments made by our faithful followers. Of course calling a Governor of Alaska a cunt isn’t any worse than a talk show host calling a lovely student, devoting her life to education, who has more sex in a day than Biden gets in a year a slut is just more grist for the wheel.

Hey, man let me see that million bucks from Maher. So, the penis-nose has given me a million. Get him over to the White Hut, I want to kiss him.

Alright. Thank you for summation. I think I actually might have been referring to the Episcopalian church. I know this outright perversion happens there!

There are so many extra-biblical precepts in the Catholic church it's sometimes confusing as to the way the bible is viewed.

You are right about extra-biblical precepts. But it is a biblical precept that paves the way for the extra-biblical precepts.

For Jesus’ words on the matter see Matthew 16:18-20 and Matthew 18:18.

“....a Buddhist who describes herself as a “naturally born agitator” committed to a “culture war.”

I thought Buddhism was all about “peace.”

Buddhism is what atheists use to appear to be spiritual.

Bingo. She’s not a Buddhist either. Seems obsessed with forcing people to think about her private matters just so she can tell them not to.

This ‘Buddist’ is the American-bred. She knows as much about Buddism as a pig knows about Sunday school.

The lesbian worships a false god.(Buddah,that is)

I don’t think they even believe in G-d.
