Traditionally in the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church the laity never received the chalice only the host on the tongue kneeling at an altar rail.
Giving the chalice to the faithful was part of many innovations including the disobedience of communion in the hand that originated in Holland and then was given an indult for countries that had the tradition.
They use the word tradition really when they meant liturgical abuse because it was at the time considered a great sacrilege.
Those countries that had communion in the hand were allowed to vote on it
America did not have the tradition it was illegally voted on and then sort of swept under the rug.
What took place in the Bible and the Early Church was actually instinction which can only be received on the tongue.
Later on different liturgical rites formed their own way of preserving the Eucharist.
The Latin Rite used a patton and a communion rail with a cloth that was placed over the rail to collect any particles.
Some of the Eastern rites used bread and wine as one species in a chalice given to the faithful with a spoon dropping the particle into their mouth.
My personal feeling is that I think if you’re going to use the chalice then do instinction otherwise half the time people can’t receive because it’s flu season or there aren’t enough eucharistic ministers.
My feeling is that the West needs to move back to its liturgical eucharistic traditions.
I also think the Tabernacle should be moved back behind the altar where it belongs.
Because every particle, every speck of bread, and every drop a wine is really, truly, Jesus Christ body, blood, soul, and divinity, every means must be taken to preserve the eucharist.
I’m sure people will disagree with me and that’s fine but I’m not going to reply to this thread I just am answering the question.
So no I don’t think it’s necessary that the faithful need to receive from the chalice.
Christ is present in both species and can be also offered up as one species simultaneously bread and wine as done in the East.
It’s legal I can receive communion in the hand and I can receive the chalice I choose not to I choose to receive on the tongue kneeling if possible and never the chalice which was originally reserved for the priest.
