A few Practices for parents and catechists to foster Eucharistic devotion:


1. Regularly attend weekend Mass with the family. Come for prayer before and after Mass.

2. Adore the raised Body and Blood of Christ at Mass with the silent phrase, "My Lord and my God."

3. Participate in Eucharistic adoration where possible.

4. Genuflect with reverence before the Blessed Sacrament.

5. Make visits to the Blessed Sacrament altar individually and with the whole family.

6. Engage family in regular Scripture study and catechesis on the Eucharist.

7. Read lives of Eucharisitc saints such as St. Katharine Drexel and St. John Neumann.

Worthy Reception fo Holy Communion


First, we approach the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass by our remote preparation.  This includes regular prayer and reading of Scripture, the faithful and loving fulfillment of the daily responsibilities of our state in life, and regular participation in the Sacrament of Penance, including daily repentance for sin by an examination of conscience and recitation of the Act of Contrition.

Second, our attentive proximate preparation includes our prayerful recollection as we come to Mass and fasting from food and drink for at least one hour prior to receiving Holy Communion as our health and age permit.   Proximate preparation also includes dressing appropriately and modestly.
