Can Someone be Denied Communion?
Sometimes we can be tricked into thinking that the Holy Communion we receive at Mass every Sunday is somehow owed to us; that we have a right to receive it. However, the Eucharist, which is Jesus Christ’s own body and blood, is a divine gift bestowed upon us by our Heavenly Father.
Because it’s a gift, the way we receive it and the state of our souls matter greatly. Which begs the question: can someone be denied Holy Communion?
In the video below, Fr. Mike Schmitz explains whether communion is a gift that can be taken away, and what that means for public figures who openly support practices against the Church, like abortion.
