That's true, or just stand to one side and let people pass. If the main concern is appearances, then he’ll make a better impression with the regulars by not taking communion.

who is Thomas? never heard before about him, what say about your question....ummm...well consider that human body is made by two elements materia and spirito so the communion would interest your spiritual dimension..........stomach is not involved

12 years of catholic education here...

the rule is.... if u miss mass without a good reason on a sunday than u are in mortal sin. U cannot receive communnion with a mortal sin on ur soul.

The only way to be in good graces again is to go to confession, confess ur mortal sin and be obsolved. It's Called "Reconciliation" ....basically ur telling a guy that u did a no-no ....and he blesses u with the sign of the cross and u say like 3 hail marys and throw an our father in there for good measure... bada bing, bada boom, ur good to go and ur back on the path to heaven

lol, i can't believe I know this useless information lol

Thomas R. has it right. You need to go to Confession first.

She then told me again, "The Conciliation" or something like that. I told her to "get off of it" and got my communion.
Was she right? Has something changed within that antiquated stuck in the Middle Ages religion that is called catholicism?
Sounds like your sister is a teabagger
Your sister should have rejoiced that you received and not been judgemental.
I have always been of the opinion those that have been away from the sacrament are in need of it and should not be turned away.
The Eucharist should be what unites and brings us together.
I don't think Jesus would turn you away.

When was the last time you saw a heretic burned at the stake?
