Communion of the Saints and the Holy Eucharist
Question from on 08-12-2007:
Dear Fr. Levis, I have the question regarding the doctrine of the communion of saints, does it also mean that if we receive Christ in the Holy Communion we're also receiving the Communion of the Saints? If not, are we therefore only communing with Christ during the reception of the Holy Eucharist while we commune with the saint's all the time? Thank you for your reply and clarification.

Simon, Yes, in some way, while we receive Jesus eucharistically, we are in tune in touch with all members of Christ's Mystical Body. We all are one, in communion with each other to some extent. Fr. Bob Levis
