Our vicar is live-streaming two communion services every Sunday morning. His wife is always present and receives communion both times, in less than three hours. . . Is it appropriate . . . when the rest of the congregation will receive no communion for months? [Answers, 15 May, 22 May]

Your answer: The spiritual grace that one person receives does not injure another. Many people are, for various reasons, excluded from participating in communion as often as others, even under ordinary circumstances. As we make our way to the altar, we should be mindful of them, bringing them with us into the Lord’s presence. Communion is never about us alone: it is about the salvation of the world.
