Q: I am an Eucharistic Minister and often visit homebound as do many others. I had someone tell me that a priest told him that one should not take Communion to your wife if she is homebound. I know of many who do. The reason given was that when married man and woman become one, and you cannot give Communion to yourself. I had never heard of this interpretation. Is it true or was it once the case?
God Bless and Thank You,
A: There is absolutely no foundation for such a rule.
Anyone eligible to receive communion may receive it from any eligible minister.
