How can you say that you have not received the Holy Spirit yet when you have received communion?
You are vastly outside any aspect of what I am talking about.
In our tradition the Liturgy celebrates the birth, life, scorging, crucifixtion, death, resurrection and accention of Christ with benediction serving as the grace of the Holy Spirit upon the Church in memorial and reverence and in affirmation since the Holy Spirit is actually already with us and upon us.
Of course the Holy Spirit is present in the actual communion we partake. I am talking about the movement of the liturgy.
The benediction is the affirmation the seal of salavation and love for His people.
You may never understand what I am trying to explain since it is a little complex and I may not be wording myself that well.
But I ask how can anyone leave the Church disregarding the benediction?
I beleive those who do that are in need of instruction.
Maybe it is good or no problem to some people maybe even some priests that people just leave out right after communion. I will not judge that.
But I will not stand behind this abrupt behavior.
