I read on another site that Eastern Orthodox women are not supposed to receive communion during menstruation. Is this true? The thread on the other site said that it is in the Canon, because when we receive Christs blood it becomes part of our blood, and therefore if you have a cut, or are menstruating then Christs blood is coming out of the wound.
Does anyone know anything about this? Did I misunderstand, or maybe the poster on the other site was misinformed?
