So you would advocate that I not receive Holy Communion from November 15 until Christmas Day?
No, your logic does not flow. It's not the eating of turkey that makes a feast a feast, it's the feast that makes a feast a feast. Would eating turkey on July 17 make July 17 as important a feast as the Nativity of our Savior?
So devoting a day to the giving of thanks to God (thanksgiving = Eucharist) is a worldly feast? Have you not read the Gospel about the 10 lepers Jesus cleansed. "Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?" I can't think of anything more not-of-this-world then taking time out of our busy schedules to give thanks to God.
The fast was made for the Feast of Nativity. You fast spiritually until Nativity and that's when you are supposed to receive The Lord into your soul.
I guess you can receive as much Communion as you want. No one can stop you, unless the priest takes time and knows how to assess your case. Receiving Communion does not mean that you are worthy of it, that you have prepared yourself accordingly. Now, you're probably going to say that we are never really worthy of Communion, anyway. That's not true, there are very strict rules that have to do with preparation
before Communion. That we are not worthy is true
, but there are no excuses for not having prepared
according to the rules. In other words, what have you done to make yourself worthy, or why haven't you done anything since you keep saying you are not worthy? Many today think that they simply lower the bar as they wish, but that's not how The Church advocates preparation before Communion, and fasting, in general, which is a very strict and supervised period.
