Is there anything wrong with receiving Holy Communion twice a day, as long as the 2nd time is in the context of Mass?
Is there anything wrong with someone who makes it their practice to go to 2 masses a day with the express purpose of receiving Holy Communion twice?
I have heard priests say that nothing was canonically wrong with the practice, but that it stemmed from a childish, misinformed understanding of what the Eucharist was all about. That somehow more is better and makes one holier, when, according to these priests, that is not the case. According to the priests who told me this, it represented a superstitious, magical thinking about the Eucharist. I disagreed with them, but I guess the thoughts stuck in the back of my mind and so I rarely go to Mass twice a day.
Can anyone clarify?
