Q&A

What should we do about those who receive the Eucharist without believing in it?

Question:

If it is a sacrilege to receive Communion without believing, what are we to do about friends and relatives who receive as a ritual without regard for the true meaning of the Eucharist? What would be the best way to bring this up? Is it uncharitable to assume that they are sinning? There are so many communicants who don&#039;t go to confession, for example, that I wonder if they are somehow protected from the sin of sacrilege by ignorance.
