Herein, what do you say when receiving communion?
Recalling that St Justin declared that no one maytakepart in Holy Communion unless “he believes thatwhatwe teach is true” let us declare our belief intheteaching of Christ and His Church, and receiveHolyCommunion reverently and truly, as members of Christ'sBodyby simply saying: “Amen”.
Secondly, can you receive communion without going to confession? From the guidelines from Scripture and theCatholicChurch, a baptized person has to be in "a state of grace"(havingcommitted no mortal sin since last confession)toreceive Holy Communion aka The Eucharist.It'sadvisable that you go to your priest and confessthissin immediately or when humanly possible.
In this way, who can receive communion?
Catholics may receive Communion during Massoroutside Mass, but "a person who has already received the MostHolyEucharist can receive it a second time on the same dayonlywithin the eucharistic celebration in which thepersonparticipates", except as Viaticum (Code of Canon Law,canon917).
When can you do your first communion?
For Catholics, Holy Communion is the thirdofseven sacraments received. It occurs only after receivingBaptism,and once the person has reached the age of reason (usually,aroundthe second grade). First confession (thefirstsacrament of penance) must precede the reception oftheEucharist.
