Examin Saturday 14 September 2013

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, strength, soul, & mind

At the Last Supper our Lord declared 'This is my Body, this is my Blood.' Do we receive the Blessed Sacrament believing this in our hearts? Do we approach the Communion rail in a prayerful and reverent fashion, doing nothing to detract from the sacredness of what is happening? After we receive, do we then return quietly to our seats, careful at all times to do nothing that will distract others? And how do we prepare to receive the Body and Blood of our Lord? Do we do so having confessed our sins in penitence and faith, having first made a careful examination of our conscience? And do we hold it ever before us that to receive him unworthily is to eat and drink our own condemnation?
