From Bishop Jim Adams
Receiving Communion - What is good and what is proper?

Being a bishop who has been to many churches and distributed Communion in every one, the ways people receive Communion are varied and quite often adventurous. Let us start with the statement that whatever else we do, we should always receive our Lord’s Body and Blood with reverence and at least a modicum of dignity. To do otherwise is to take the risk of disturbing others receiving. That is why I always ask that those receiving the Body, only, should stay at the rail with hands crossed on your chest to indicate you will not receive the Chalice, then leave as the Chalice Bearer goes by you. The same for those receiving blessings only.

Let me say first that I am not speaking to small children who receive. Children are just that, and our Lord asks that they come to Him. But children should always be taught, and best by example, and not admonished at the Rail, especially. This is not the same reaction you will get if you are chewing gum (children and adults - Yes I have had both.). I will immediately ask you to remove the gum before receiving.

To receive the Body of Christ, hold your hands, right in left, high, at least eye level if possible. Take your time, it is not a contest to see who can consume the fastest. If receiving from the Cup, then consume and wait for the Cup Bearer. When the Cup is offered, please touch the base of the Chalice and help the Bearer to guide it to your lips. When finished, then leave the Rail, just after the person to your left has received.

If you receive the Blood of Christ by intinction, then hold the Host until the Chalice Bearer arrives in front of you. To be proper, let the Chalice Bearer take the Host, dip it in the Chalice and then allow the Bearer to place the Body and Blood on your tongue. More frequently today people are intincting their own Host. If this is the practice, hold the Host between your index finger and thumb and dip it in the Chalice, without getting your fingers in the liquid, and then place it upon your own tongue. The answer to why the Chalice Bearer is that the Chalice Bearer has always washed their hands. As before leave in the same manner.

I have had many people ask me about the Common Chalice and Intinction. This became more popular due to fear of receiving another’s disease. I do not choose for people. I share my own experience. I was told and checked it out, “If you do not believe that the power of the Holy Spirit will keep you safe, believe in science. Gold and alcohol, together, are a great astringent.” I have never been made ill from a Chalice. One man told me, well, you receive first. True, but I also clean up after, and I have received after literally thousands of people.

Children like everyone else need instruction in life, and we learn at different levels. Home and Church should always teach traditions and receiving Communion is an important one. But, as I said before, example is a great teacher and instruction, at the proper level, should always be done at both places. Need help? Ask for it. And give everyone the gift of paying attention to yourself and not examining other’s worship. That could take care of many controversies in the Church.
