Receiving more than one Host


So, I don’t think I’m going to find the answer to this on google…

I received two hosts today, both at the same Mass, just so we’re clear. I think both the EMHC and I realized that he was holding two hosts at the time, we both paused kind of, and then I received both hosts (on the tongue, as I normally do). Anyways, I didn’t feel that I should not receive two and wait or something for him to put one back.

Is there a protocol on this? Or does it matter? *

This is the first time this has ever happened to me, and I’ve never heard of anyone else mentioning this.*



It happened to me a couple of times. There is absolutely nothing wrong if the hosts are given at the same time. Not to be confused with hearing two masses and receiving holy communion twice.




Ok, thank you all!
