Greetings in the Lord
I am an Anglican, with High Church/Anglo-Catholic leanings. My understanding is that a non-Catholic may be permitted to receive Communion from a Roman Catholic priest on his death-bed, but under virtually no other circumstances.
Yet in private conversation with a number of RC friends, including several priests, it has emerged that there is a body of opinion within the Catholic Church which regards this as an excessively restrictive formulation. Indeed, one Jesuit pries of my acquaintance said, when I asked him about it, “I would never refuse you”.
Moreover, sometimes when travelling overseas (I live in the UK) there is no Anglican place to go to. And on these occasions my preferred destination is a RC church, not least because the order of the Eucharist is in principle essentially the same. So I have sometimes taken communion at a Catholic church, for I am a good enough protestant to think that this is between me and God, not between me and the Vatican.
What think the good people in this Forum?
