Under certain circumstances, yes. There is a formal communicatio in sacris between the Chaldean Catholic Church and the Assyrian Church of the East under which the faithful of each Church can receive regularly from each Church (only the clergy abstaining from inter-communion and concelebration). One would suppose that, since any Catholic of any particular Church can receive in the Chaldean Catholic Church, that any Catholic should thereby be able to receive in any Assyrian church at any time.

We have two of the three represented in our diocese and our bishop has made it very clear that the cricumstances under which a Catholic might seek communion in either of them do not exist in this place. In fact, it seems to me that the Bishop's Conference made a statement to that affect for the entire country some time ago. Since there are sufficient Catholic parishes, the need foreseen by the permission does not exist.

I'll still go to an Orthodox parish before a Latin one. Sorry, but that is my conviction.

The pertinant canon is #844 it lays out the rule as to when this inter communion can take place.

Canons certainly apply to Latins in one way, to Eastern Catholics in quite another. There is almost always a Latin parish somewhere, but in many places there are no Eastern Catholic parishes. I personally find that there is spiritual nourishment in Orthodox parishes, even if I cannot receive the Eucharist, that I do not find in Latin parishes.

I share your viewpoint.

I sadly share your viewpoint and I am a Latin :P but it's hard to find spiritual nurishment in the Latin church.

the CCEO canons are somewhat different on the matter than the CIC canons for the Latins...

CCEO Canons 670 and 671 of the CCEO are relevant, and 671 is nearly word for word identical to CIC 844.

It should be noted, however, that preextant specific treaties are higher sources than the CCEO and CIC.

When it comes to the CCEO, I share the viewpoint of the late Patriarch Maximos V of Antioch.
