On Communion

On people who go to Mass without receiving Holy Communion -

They are close to this glorious Sacrament, like a person dying of thirst by the side of a river when he has only to bend his head and take a drink; like a person remaining in poverty with a treasury by his side when he has only to stretch out his hand.

Quotes of Saint John Vianney, the Cure of Ars - from his Eucharistic Meditations

Absolutely. One must be in a state of grace to receive Holy Communion.
