      An example would be myself, an Ordinariate member (clearly qualified because I came over from TEC) but because of geographic factors I go most Sundays to the TLM at a "regular" Latin Rite parish.  No question about receiving communion.

      Sorry, maybe I haven't explained this very well. They can communicate and do; because all those in communion with the Bishop of Rome are in communion with each other. Eastern Rites and Latin Rite can receive from each other. Ordinariate is a use within the Latin Rite.

      The business about joining is about jurisdiction. Members of the Ordinariate are under the Jurisdiction of their Ordinary. Members of the local diocese are under the jurisdict ion of the Diocesan Bishop. The Polish mission has its own jurisdiction. This determines who grants faculties, Marriage matters, admits candidates to holy orders etc. But all those jurisdictions are part of one church and in full communion with one another.

      Hope that clarifies things?

      There are also lots of examples of diocesan catholics opting to worship with the ordinariate although they cannot join it. 

      How can you be a communicant in a rite and not be allowed to "join" (whatever that means)?  Why is there a prohibition and how is it enforced? Denying people communion?
