Q. 1. I understand that there are three reasons why the Catholic Church is against the distribution of Holy Communion under two kinds, the Body (bread) and Blood (wine) of Christ. Can you provide that list?
A. 1. The three reasons that are given by some members of the Church are:
a. The Vatican has never approved of this practice on a large scale. Contrary to what is said, prior to his election and afterwards, Pope Benedict XVI encouraged the practice.
b. The practice of receiving communion under both kinds should be kept for special and extraordinary occasions. Routine practices are never appreciated as much as special occasions.
c. The Catholic Church teaches that you have the fullness of Christ, body, blood, soul and divinity, under the form of bread alone. So why promote otherwise as if you absolutely need to receive the cup also? Such a practice promotes confusion regarding the Catholic doctrine on concomitance.
