Can Holy Communion be received on Sat. night and Sun. morning?

I received Holy Communion at the Saturday night Mass, so can I receive it again at the Sunday morning Mass?


Catholics can receive communion twice in the same day provided that the second time they receive is at Mass.

In this case, however, Catholics are free to receive because canon law states that a new day begins at Midnight and therefore Saturday and Sunday are considered two different days even though the Mass is the same.
