On Easter Sunday we may sing at as many as 3 masses. We are allowed to receive at each mass because receiving at each means that we are most fully participating at the Eucharistic sacrifice.

What is the understanding out there on whether it is licit to receive Communion more than once on a given day?It would make sense that such should not happen more than once/day in a given Eucharistic community. But what about a situation where one is at one parish for the usual Sunday Mass and then later in the day is at a special Mass in another parish?Comments are encouraged.David---------------------------
You are correct. I wish Fr. Joseph had saved the ablutions till the last mass. Since he always overpoured the wine and I helped him with the ablutions, sometimes I had had too much by the end of the third service.Shalom b'Yeshua haMoshiach+Mar Michael AbportusPastor, Congregation Benim Avrahamhttp://www.freewebs.com/childrenofabraham/

I think you are referring to the celebrant here, not the people in the pews. I remember a priest who had three masses on Sundays. He 'had' to receive communion, but saved the ablutions until the end of the latest mass.
