From the western Code of Canon Law (CIC 1983):

Can.  912 Any baptized person not prohibited by law can and must be admitted to Holy Communion.

Can.  913 §1. The administration of the Most Holy Eucharist to children requires that they have sufficient knowledge and careful preparation so that they understand the mystery of Christ according to their capacity and are able to receive the body of Christ with faith and devotion.

§2. The Most Holy Eucharist, however, can be administered to children in danger of death if they can distinguish the body of Christ from ordinary food and receive communion reverently.

Can.  914 It is primarily the duty of parents and those who take the place of parents, as well as the duty of pastors, to take care that children who have reached the use of reason are prepared properly and, after they have made sacramental confession, are refreshed with this divine food as soon as possible. It is for the pastor to exercise vigilance so that children who have not attained the use of reason or whom he judges are not sufficiently disposed do not approach Holy Communion.

Can. 11 Merely ecclesiastical laws bind those who have been baptized in the Catholic Church or received into it, possess the efficient use of reason, and, unless the law expressly provides otherwise, have completed seven years of age.

FROM THE EASTERN CODE OF CANON LAW (CCEO 1990):

Canon 710

With respect to the participation of infants in the Divine Eucharist after baptism and chrismation with holy myron, the prescriptions of the liturgical books of each Church sui iuris are to be observed with the suitable due precautions.

Jimmy Akin answers:

Why are there differences in the genealogies in Matthew and Luke?

How do you address the Protestant claim that even with unified teachings, Catholics aren’t unified?

1. I’ve heard it wasn’t uncommon for some people to sleep in the stable of an inn during busy times? Was that true? 

2. What was the Star of Bethlehem? A conjunction of planets, meteor, comet, supernatural event? What does the Church or Church Fathers say about it? 

3. What is significant about gold, frankincense, and myrrh? 

4. How did the birth of Jesus come to be celebrated on December 25? 

5. Why do Eastern Orthodox churches celebrate Christmas on January 7?

6. What light does the Ark of the Covenant shed on Mary's perpetual virginity, and what evidence do we have for her perpetual virginity?

Logos Bible Software update

Android app announcement 

Special "Apologetics of Christmas" Interview (pt. 1)

* JASON WARD FROM CATHOLIC DADS ONLINE (CatholicDadsOnline.org) ASKS:

1. Should Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus? There is no evidence the apostles did. When did it become a feast day? Weren't birthdays a pagan thing?

2. Why was he named Jesus when, as stated in Matthew 1:23, the Messiah was to be called Immanuel?

3. Matthew 1:23 quotes Isaiah 7:14 as “a virgin will conceive” from the Septuagint, but the original Hebrew uses the word “almah” meaning “young woman of marriagable age.” Was Matthew wrong to quote this?

4. What does Joseph’s reaction, in Matthew 1:19, to the news of Mary’s pregnancy tell us about his character?

5. Why would Joseph take a 9-month pregnant Mary to Bethlehem instead of taking her earlier? Why did he take her at all? Couldn’t he have just left her in Nazareth?
