I know that according to the Cannon, one can receive Communion again in the same day only in a second Mass, for instance for a wedding or a funeral or for some other valid reason.
However, on this Palm Sunday I was a reader in several Masses:
On Saturday 7pm Mass I was the chronicler of the Gospel reading.
On Sunday 11.30am Mass, and again at 7pm Mass I was also the chronicler.
At 1pm Mass I helped distribute Communion (I am an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion).
Finnally, at 8.15pm Mass I stayed to help coordinate the readers of the Gospel.
In every one of this Masses, I received Communion.
I did it with great love and devotion, I did not intend to banalize this Holy Sacrament.
The first reason I did it is because I thought since I was performing a certain duty during Mass I was somehow allowed to receive Communion on each Mass.
And I was also concerned to think that people in each Mass did not know that I had attended other Masses before, and that it would not be a good testimony for them to see that I who was helping, did not receive Communion, like I did not care.
Now I realize I should not have worried about what others thought about me, many Catholics do not receive Communion at Mass and no one notices.
After the last Mass I talked to the the priest and he said this is a basic teaching of the Catechism and he reprimanded me strongly :mad: and said I should not have received Communion on every Mass.
I am truly sorry, embarrased and sad :( because It was not my intention to do something wrong on purpose.
Should I go to Confession?
