 USCCB - (Liturgy) - Non-Catholics and Holy Communion
Ecclesial communities derived from the Reformation and separated from the Catholic Church, "have not preserved the proper reality of the Eucharistic mystery in its fullness, especially because of the absence of the sacrament of Holy Orders." It is for this reason that Eucharistic intercommunion with these communities is not possible for the Catholic Church.

In the Roman Catholic Church, communion is more accurately referred to as "the Eucharist." The official belief is that the bread and wine (more often only the wafer of unleavened bread) is somehow transformed from bread and wine into the actual, real, physical body and blood of Jesus Christ.
The Catholic doctrines further declare that one "receives Christ" when one eats the wafer of "consecrated bread." (The Protestant understanding of "receiving Christ" is quite different.) This explains why Catholics kneel before the Eucharist, perform acts of worship in its presence, such as bowing, using incense, keeping a lit candle nearby, and so forth.
In fact, Catholic priests are expressly forbidden by their church to distribute the Eucharist to anyone they know is a Protestant, a divorced -and-remarried Catholic, or to a Catholic whom they know to be in what that church refers to as "heresy," or "apostasy," or "mortal sin." (according to the Catholic definition of same).

The Catholic Church's strict rules against non-Catholics receiving the Eucharist in Catholic liturgies--and its even stricter rules against Catholics receiving Communion in non-Catholic liturgies--have been a source of great irritation, frustration, offense, and pain both for the many Catholics with family members in other Christian churches, and in Catholics' ecumenical relations with these churches.

I speak here of marriages where one partner is a Roman Catholic and the other a member of a different communion.
It is not easy for some to see that it does not weaken the witness of the Roman Catholic Church to the close relationship between eucharistic communion and ecclesial communion.

Members of churches not in full communion with the Catholic Church may not be invited to receive the Eucharist, but should someone in good conscience (that is, not realizing that he or she is ineligible) approach, the person should be given Holy Communion rather than be publicly embarrassed.
