With great care

1 November 2021

We should pay great attention to the prayers before Holy Communion. And when we’re going up to receive the sacrament, we should pray and say: ‘God forgive me and have mercy upon me’. We should approach with great care. And when we return, we should have words of praise on our lips; we should glorify God for receiving us.
