It certainly does. It doesn’t do much to alleviate my frustration at the conundrum, but it is comforting to know that I am not alone in my difficult position. I wish I could honestly say that I maintain daily prayer and regularly read the liturgy. I wish I could honestly say that I even do that on a weekly basis. But I certainly do try to keep the discipline, and this is an excellent way to manage the problem.

When I go to Basic Training, I may find myself unable to take Communion at Mass, depending on which services are provided. The same will be true during deployments. I WILL have my BCP with me and WILL be maintaining daily prayers. I think reading the text for the Eucharistic Mass will go a long way toward alleviating some of the burden of not being able to actually take the Eucharist.

I’ll still attend Roman Rite Mass, when it is offered, even if I won’t be welcome to take the Eucharist. Something is better than nothing.

I did that myself for a year. You will find this very helpful to you.
