Can a layperson take The Holy Communion at Home alone? Or do you have to go to Mass in order to get the Communion?
St.Basil of Caesarea d.379 ad. wrote, “All the solitaries in the desert, where there is no priest, take commumion themselves, keeping the commumion at home. And in Eygpt, each one of the laity keeps the commumion at his own house and participates in it when he likes.”
So does that means it ok to participate of the Holy Communion at Home when there’s no priest according to what Basil wrote?
