Question from Annie on 5/31/2008:

can a priest refuse the Blessed Eucharist to a person that he knows has not practiced their faith for years. Annie
Answer by Fr. Robert J. Levis on 6/4/2008:

Annie, Such a person, careless in Faith, should be instructed not to receive Communion, in private not in public, surely not at the Communion rail. Most priests presume all those who come for Communion are in the state of grace, have confessed their sins if necessary. He presumes this and gives the Eucharist to all. Fr. Bob Levis
