Liturgical notes

It is most desirable that the faithful, just as the priest himself is bound to do, receive the Lord’s Body from hosts consecrated at the same Mass and that, in the instances when it is permitted, they partake of the chalice, so that even by means of the signs Communion will stand out more clearly as a participation in the sacrifice actually being celebrated.

General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §85 

In many parishes, during the singing of the Lamb of God, the acolyte will go to the tabernacle and bring a ciborium of hosts consecrated at a previous Mass to be used immediately for Communion. In so doing, the parish is denying the people of God their opportunity to exercise their priesthood. To be able to exercise their priestly role of offering sacrifice, they need to bring their offering to the altar with the hosts during the procession of gifts. These hosts are then consecrated and returned to them in Communion. While this is obligatory for the presiding celebrant, it should be available to the entire assembly.

‘The Lord sits as King for ever. The Lord will bless his people with peace.’
