Frequency of Communion


#1

If I attend a Sunday Mass on Saturday night and again on Sunday morning, may I receive Communion at both Masses? If I (for example) attend a Saturday Mass, an ordination Mass, a wedding Mass, a funeral Mass, and a Sunday vigil Mass all on the same day. may I or should I receive Communion at all of them?

Yes. As far as receiving Communion goes, this counts as having received once per day.

Unless you are in danger of death, in which case you may always receive viaticum, you may receive Communion twice in a day, so long as the second time is during the celebration of Mass. In the example you gave the person may choose two Masses at which to receive Communion.
