Frequent Communion

Frequent Communion is the Roman Catholic practice of receiving the eucharist frequently, as opposed to the usual medieval practice of receiving it once or a few times a year.[1] Pope Pius X pushed for the practice of frequent communion,[2] relaxing restrictions on reception for the sick[3] and children.[4]
