My concern was that the poster was worried about the appearance of having ashes as opposed to the sacrifice of the Mass.
Also, I have no idea why you would not receive communion daily or weekly. So long as your conscience was clear of mortal sin, and you hadn't previously received that day (or whatever the specifics are for receiving multiple times daily), I would think one would be encouraged to receive as frequently as possible.
"What has passed our lips as food, O Lord, may we possess in purity of heart, that what is given to us in time, be our healing for eternity. May Your Body, O Lord, which I have eaten, and Your Blood which I have drunk, cleave to my very soul, and grant that no trace of sin be found in me, whom these pure and holy mysteries have renewed."
Grace is received by attending Mass, but there is much more grace in receiving the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Christ in the Eucharist.
Being this is the Traditional forum, I'd like to ask.......from a traditional viewpoint......why would you think it better to receive daily (new OF practice) rather then the older practice of a less frequent reception of the sacrament(practice of the pre-Vatican II church)?
It bothers me all this mixing and matching........if one is going to attend the traditional Mass shouldn't one also follow the traditional practices and discipline that go along with that? ( fasting, holy days, ect.)?
