Comment from UTT:
 
The Roman Catholic Eucharist is for Roman Catholics ONLY
 
The following article suggests if a non-Catholic attends mass, when the wafer is handed out, he or she should remain seated and not partake, or go forward, cross ones arms over the chest and "receive a blessing". 
 
This idea is not taught in Scripture, but it certainly places great power and authority in the hands of the Roman Catholic Church. The New Evangelization program is the newest Roman Catholic program to convince the separated brethren to accept that a priest really has the power to transubstantiate. Many are converting as the agenda becomes more widespread.

Article: Roman Catholic Church And The Last Days
 
Reader Barbara Kopec asked: What is the proper etiquette for a non-Catholic attending a Roman Catholic mass? What should he/she do during the communion service? How do you politely explain this to your guest so he/she does not feel excluded? American Catholics have been debating for years how to welcome guests in their parish without offending God.

Those that consider the adage "What would Jesus do?" canít imagine him turning anyone away. The New Testament is filled with stories of how Jesus welcomed people from the margins of society, inviting them to the dinner table, healing their ailments and giving them vital roles in his ministry.

But simply sitting in a pew does not qualify someone to receive communion. For Catholics, receiving communion means they are in "communion" with the rest of the Catholic church, and live by its tenets.

For the answer to Barbaraís question, I went to Rev. Bob Barron, a professor of systematic theology at Mundelein Seminary. Father Bob said there are two options for guests who are not eligible for communion.

First, there is nothing wrong with staying seated in the pew. It shows respect for the sacred ritual.

But there is a second, more inclusive option. Invite your guest to queue up with the communicants. While others hold out their palms to receive communion, instruct your guest to cross his or her arms in front of the chest (with hands on opposite shoulders) to show the priest the person is there to receive a blessing.

Anyone can receive a blessing, no matter their faith.
