It would be custom in Ireland amongst regular mass goers that unless you are 'in the state of grace', having confessed your sins and your soul cleansed, then you should not receive the sacrament of holy communion. It also used to be a custom that you had to fast for 1 hour before mass if you were going to receive the body of christ.
There's no other custom but this one that's practiced by Polish Roman Catholics as well.
If they truly understood the significance of this, the essence of Jesus's sacrifice, they would get off their butts and pay their tributes.
My guess is that many people here are just bandwagon jumpers, stating themselves as Catholic Christians without really knowing what that means.
All Polish Catholics had to learn catechism as children, thererefore they do know what it means to be Roman Catholic, and the significance of the sacrament. They also reflect upon catechism where they can properly determine if they are WORTHY to receive the sacrament. Have you ever done that?
It's rather disrespectful not to partake in the ceremony.
It is rather disrespectful to receivethe sacrament without
reflecting on your conscience within the catechism: It's rather false pride.
Do all Christians religions partake in the sacrament of communion or is it only Catholics.
Yes. Although it's bit different. It's very rare to see Roman Catholics to drink wine, "drinking the blood of Christ" ritual is usually performed at a wedding ceremony. :)
