Eucharistic Reflection - Approaching The Holy Altar

“To approach the holy altar, one must have an upright intention, that is to say, one should not receive Communion under constraint or on account of habit, human respect, vanity, or any other motive, but for the sake of uniting himself to the intentions for which Jesus Christ instituted this Sacrament, namely to transform us into Himself, to obtain from Him some graces for ourselves and for others, or again, to perpetuate and resurrect in us the memory of His Passion,  as He Himself commanded in the Upper Room.”

(Blessed Hyacinthe-Marie Cormier, O.P. from Instructions for Novices)


  1. I like the look of this blog. It's been awhile since I've received email notifications of posts. It must be the internet goblins trying to keep me away from the inspiring posts you share.
