Communion under both kinds - Holy Communion has a fuller form as a sign when it is distributed under both kinds. For in this form the sign of the Eucharistic banquet is more clearly evident and clear expression is given to the divine will by which the new and eternal Covenant is ratified in the Blood of the Lord. What is also more clearly evident when Holy Communion is given under both kinds is the relationship between the Eucharistic banquet and the heavenly banquet in the Father's Kingdom.
While Holy Communion does have a fuller form as a sign when it is given under both kinds, the church very clearly teaches that Christ, whole and entire, is received even under only one kind, and consequently that as far as the effects are concerned, those who receive the Sacred Host only or the Precious Blood from the Sacred Chalice only are not deprived of any of the grace that is necessary for salvation.
