Intinction

In the Book of Common Prayer, under the heading of Additional Direction (pages 407-8), the following appears:

 

Opportunity is always to be given to every communicant to receive the consecrated Bread and Wine separately. But the Sacrament may be received in both kinds simultaneously, in a manner approved by the bishop. (i.e., the chalice bearer and not the communicant does the intinction.)
