What should I do when not receiving Communion? For one reason or another, sometimes when I attend Mass, I do not receive Communion. Assuming that I am there without my family or others who are receiving, what should I do?
I see some people leave before the beginning of the Liturgy of the Eucharist, and I know that in St. Augustine’s time, they had those not receiving (ex: the Catechumens) leave before this part of the Mass.
I would be very grateful if someone could answer this question, and tell me where I can find the guidelines for this?
