Can Someone be Denied Communion?

Posted on October 3, 2021 by Published by

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.
