DEAR FATHER | Reasons vary for pattern in distributing Communion under one or both species

Sometimes, this discussion of offering Holy Communion under both forms turns into a contentious issue. Some feel that when the Precious Blood isn't offered, they don't fully participate in Holy Communion or their rights as Catholics have been infringed upon. Far from feeling united in communion, individuals feel divided.

This view might be motivated by the underlying belief that clergy exclusively possess the Eucharist. Others participate only to the extent that this group allows. However, this view isn't wholly correct.
