Maybe today, but I definitely don't think that was the case when the frequent reception of holy Communion was first being supported on a wide scale. I'd say that the early Jesuits' policy on the matter was pretty good.

??  What was that?

"The Jesuits played a major role in promoting increased fervor for the reception of this Sacrament. Although Ignatius of Loyola did not initiate this increased enthusiasm, he did establish it as an important goal of the new order and this promotion was articulated in the foundation documents of the Society of Jesus: the Spiritual Exercises, the Formula of the Institute, and the Constitutions. Included in this body of literature, although not considered of the same canonical status, are the recommendation given by Loyola in his private correspondence. These fundamental documents, the letters included, encourage members of the order to promote monthly Communion, and even weekly Communion for the laity if they were so disposed."
