Examin 28 September 2013

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, strength, soul, & mind
To receive the Blessed Sacrament worthily requires a conscience free from serious sin; and that requires a diligent and detailed examination of your conscience prior to the confessing of your sins. How much time do you spend in making such an examination? And how systematic are you when you do so? Do you go through the commandments, using them to guide you through all you have learned of what the Church teaches? Do you honestly and openly admit before God your Creator, Redeemer, and Judge where you have not followed his precepts and commands? Are you truly sorry for that wrong-doing, not only because you thereby risk your eternal salvation, but because of how greatly it offends his Almighty goodness? And do you firmly resolve to turn away from these sins for the remainder of your life, committing yourself anew to to live out your Baptismal promises, and seeking out your salvation in fear and trembling?
