Important Reminder When Receiving the Precious Blood

For the reception of the Precious Blood, all must be standing. According to the “General Instruction of the Roman Missal”, no. 286 states: “Each communicant, after receiving the Body of Christ, moves to the minister of the chalice and stands facing him. The minister says, “The Blood of Christ”, the communicant replies, “Amen”, and the minister hands over the chalice, which the communicant raises to his or her mouth. Each communicant drinks a little from the chalice, hands it back to the minister, and then withdraws.”
