Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day!

To receive the Holy Communion worthily it is necessary;
1) To be in the state of grace. 
Woe to him who would venture to approach the Holy Table of the Lord with a conscience stained with mortal sin! Such a bad Christian would be guilty like the traitor Judas of sacrilege. 
Therefore St Paul in words of earnest warning says to us; But let a man prove himself and so let him eat of that bread and drink of the chalice. For he that eateth and  drinketh unworthily eateth and drinketh judgment to himself not deserving the body of the Lord. 1 Cor.x:28 29.
2) One must live with his neighbors in peace and Christian unity Communion means union and is so called because it is the image of the perfect union and brotherly love of all the faithful in Christ who teaches us that we must not bring our sacrifice to the Altar if we remember that our neighbor has anything against us.

Hence we should desire nothing more ardently than to receive Jesus Christ as often as possible in Holy Communion. Two classes of men should receive Holy Communion often the perfect and the imperfect ; the perfect that they may continue so and the imperfect that they may attain perfection: the strong that they may not become weak and the weak that they may become strong the sick that they may recover health and the healthy that they may not become sick. -St Francis

The Sacrament of the Altar is the Most Holy the Most Excellent and the Greatest. The other Sacraments contain the Graces and Gifts of God but the Sacrament of the Altar contains God Himself. For indeed the whole perfection of man consist in his union with God; but there is no more powerful means of uniting us with God than Holy Communion through which the soul becomes one as it were with Jesus as He Himself declared when He said ” He that eateth my flesh and drinketh my blood abideth in Me and I in Him. John vi.57. The principal effect of this most Holy Sacrament is to preserve in man the Life of Grace. It is the most powerful remedy to free us from our daily faults and to preserve us from mortal sin. Sess. Xiii.2 First of all Holy Communion infuses into our hearts the Love of God. Jesus Christ has expressly declared that He came into the world for no other cause than to kindle in our hearts the fire of His Divine Love.” I am come to cast fire on the earth and what will I but that it be kindled? Luke XII.49 What is there now on the earth that can better inflame the heart of man with divine love than the Holy Sacrament of the Altar where our Divine Redeemer gives us Himself entire? Our Saviour in this Sacrament has poured out all the treasure of His Love for us. Sess. XII.2 and expressed the wish that the faithful should receive Communion not only spiritually but sacrament ally every time they assist at Mass. Sess.xxii.6

THE SEVEN PENITENTIAL PSALMS. ANT. remembered not O Lord our offences not those of our parents and take not revenge on our sins.
                    I.
PSALM VI : DOMINE NE IN FURORE.
O LORD rebuke us not in thy indignation nor chastise us in thy wrath.
Have mercy on us O Lord force are weak heal us O Lord for our bones ate troubled
And our souls are troubled exceedingly but Thou O Lord how long?
Turn to us O Lord and deliver our soul: O save us for thy mercies sake.
For there is no one in death that is mindful of Thee : and who shall confess to Thee in hell ?
We have labored in our groaning every night we will wash our bed ; we will water our couch with our tears.
Our eyes are troubled through indignation ; we have grown old amongst all our enemies.
Depart from us all ye workers of iniquity for the Lord had heard the voice e of our sweeping.
The Lord hath heard our supplication: the Lord hath received our prayer.
Let all our enemies be ashamed and be very much troubled : let them be turned back and be ashamed very speedily.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

PSALM XXXI : BEATI QUORUM.
Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven and whose sins ate covered.
Blessed is the man to whom the Lord hath not imputed sin and in whose spirit there is no guile. Because we were silent our bones grew old : whilst we cried out all the day long
For day and night thy hand was heavy upon us: we are turned in our anguish while the thorn are fastened.
We have acknowledge our sin to thee and our injustice we have not concealed.
We said we will confess against ourselves our injustice to the Lord and Thou hast forgiven the wickedness of our sin.
For this shall everyone that is holy pray to thee in seasonable time.
And yet in a flood of many waters they shall not come nigh unto Him.
Though art our refuge from the troubled which hath encompassed us: our joy deliver us from them that sorround us.
We will give Thee understanding and we will instruct Thee in this way in which Thou shalt go; we will fix our eyes upon Thee
Do not become like the horse and the mule that have no understanding 
With bit and britle bind fast their jaws who came near unto Thee.
Many are the scourges of the sinner but mercy shall encompass them that hopeth in the Lord.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice ye just and glory all ye right of heart.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit as it was in the beginning now and ever shall be world without end. Amen.

PSALM IIIVII: DOMINE NE FURORE 2.
Our friends and our neighbours have drawn near and stood against us.
And they that were near us stood afar off ; and they that sought our soul used violence
And they that sought evils to us spoke vain things and studied deceits all the day long. But we as a deaf men heard not; and was as a dumb man not opening g his mouth. And we became as a man that heareth not : and that hath no reproofs in his mouth. For in thee O Lord have we hoped : Thou wilt hear us O Lord our God.
For we said ; List at any time our enemies rejoice over us: and whilst our feet are moved they speak great things against us.
For we ate ready for scourges; and our sorrow is continually before us.
For we declare our iniquity: and we will think for our sins.
But our enemies live and are stronger than us: and they that hate us wrongfully are multiplied.
They that render evil for good have detracted us because we followed goodness.
Forsake us not O Lord our God : do not Thou depart from us. Attend unto our help O Lord the God of our salvation.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Amen.
