The faithful must abstain from solid food and liquids for one hour before receiving Holy Communion. Water does not break the fast. Those who are sick, even though not confined to bed, may take any liquid or food as medicine at any time before Holy Communion without asking permission.
Fasting and Abstinence are prescribed for Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, limited to faithful between the ages of 21 and 60. Abstinence is prescribed as a general rule for every Friday in Lent, applicable from the age of 14 onwards. However due to the special circumstances in our Vicariate, abstinence is to be observed on Wednesday in Lent. Out of Devotion, abstinence may be observed on every Wednesday during the year...
Your hands should be clean. As you approach the minister, place one hand upon the other and extend them forward so that the minister sees clearly that you wish to receive the Host in the hand. Otherwise, he will assume that you wish to receive on the tongue. The palm of the upper hand should be flat and the fingers straight. When the minister has placed the Host upon the palm of the hand, stand aside to let the next person come forward. Before turning around or walking away, reverently consume the Host by taking it with the thumb and forefinger of the other hand and placing it in your mouth. Because we believe that our Lord is present in any particle of the Host, however small, care must be taken to ensure that no particles are lost and that any particles that remain on the palm are reverently consumed.
We believe that when we receive Holy Communion, we receive the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, our Lord and God. What we receive is not bread and wine. We should therefore approach the Sacrament with reverence due to God.
The priest, deacon, or other minister will show the consecrated Host or the Chalice and say "The body of Christ" or "The Blood of Christ"> The communicant should answer in a audible voice "Amen". This is an important act of faith in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharistic species. Holy Communion may be received either on the tongue or in the hand. Each communicant is free to decide how to receive.
