Under both kinds nice but not essential for laity
SWR writes:
It is heresy to deny concomitance and that the whole Christ is present in either species.

One who by choice receives in one kind does not receive any less eucharist or a lesser quality or quantity Christ than the one who receives in both species.

Intinction is unnecessary. If for some reason a person makes a choice to receive in one kind, that is sufficient, rather than insisting upon unnecessary intinction.

Insisting that everyone must have both seems to only be a common cry of the crowd that want to prove how much they are not Romans, and who do not appear to understand the nature of what was formerly bread and wine.

Our old friend and Angelic Doctor treats of this topic (receiving in both/one kind) well in
Summa.
