As we are into the season of Lent, the last supper comes to mind. The celebration of the Eucharist also calls to mind, that we share the Body and Blood of Christ. However, although we receive the Body we did not receive the Blood of Christ. I am wondering if we are in any way defaulting on the doctrinal instruction of Christ Jesus.

I cannot recollect when was the last time I had the opportunity to receive the Blood of Christ? However as a child I received it when we had Mass during a Church picnic. How amazing but it is true. I fully understand that it is tedious and cumbersome process of sharing but certainly I hope it is not due to this reason that it is not done at every Mass.
