St. Pius X did have a point about the faithful needing the graces of holy Communion. Unfortunately, I think his plan backfired in the long run: now a lot of people not only receive no grace from the reception of holy Communion, they also commit a sacrilege due to reception while in the state of mortal sin. I'd say that the custom during the first half of the 20th century is probably most ideal: those who have gone to confession within the last week or so go to Communion (which could be half of the attendees at any particular Mass) while the rest of us who haven't stay back and say that we accidentally ate something after midnight if questioned.

+1,000,000

This was a huge turn off for me at my NO. For a while I was going to confession 2-3 times a week, receiving daily communion but there was an impossible ratio of penitents to communicants, and I was in a position to judge since, as I say, I was attending lots of masses. A trickle in the confession box but virtualy EVERYONE receives the host. Insane. At least at the TLM there is a huge line to the confessional, and the same people are clearly in the line every week.
