Can one just partake of the Blessed Wine?


Can people just take the Blood of Our Lord as Communion instead of the Body? Both contain the Real Presence of Our Lord. I think it’s a solution to the “gluten-free or not” problem.

Just curious as I have seen it done before.

Thanks! First question: bit nervous. :shrug:

Yes, anyone may receive either the host or from the chalice and receive the fullness of Christ’s body, blood, soul and divinity. It is perfectly acceptable and appropriate for someone who has a gluten allergy to receive only from the chalice.
