Let me state up front I know (by Can. 917) that an individual *may *receive a second time under the proper circumstances, but:
Is there any compulsion, or even a positive reason to do so? It is my understanding that among the reasons for limiting the number of receptions is that there is no “multiplication of graces” by multiple receptions, so is there any particular reason *to *do so? Is it just so people can look/feel like they are fitting in?
For instance, this past Sunday I was the scheduled reader at my parish’s 9am Mass; Later, for social reasons, I attended the noon Mass at a near-by parish. I did not feel any particular reason to receive a second time, so I did not. Can it be said that I missed out on something by refraining from the second reception?
