A VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR:

Proper Reception of Holy Communion

Recently it has been observed that after reception of Holy Communion some parishioners walk away without consuming the Body of Christ. This is not acceptable. After receiving the precious body of Jesus Christ, it must be consumed immediately BEFORE walking away. And, it is not permissible for parents to share Holy Communion with their children before their children have made their First Holy Communion. This practice is a great offense against the miraculous precious body of Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. We should never forget that the manner in which we receive the Eucharist “ought to convey the respect, solemnity, and joy of this moment when Christ becomes our Guest” (Catechism, no. 1387).

It’s also necessary to approach Christ’s Precious Body and Blood with reverence: “When receiving Holy Communion, the communicant bows his or her head before the Sacrament as a gesture of reverence and receives the Body of the Lord from the minister” (General Instruction of the Roman Missal, no. 160).]

 

UN MENSAJE MUY IMPORTANTE DE PARTE DEL PARROCO:

Recepción Adecuada de la Sagrada Comunión

 

Se ha observado recientemente que al acercarse a recibir la Comunión algunas personas se alejan del altar sin hacer consumido el Cuerpo de Cristo. Esto de ninguna manera es aceptable. El Cuerpo de Cristo se debe consumir por completo inmediatamente después de haberlo recibido. Por otro lado NO ES PERMITIDO que los padres compartan la Sagrada Comunión con sus hijos si los hijos no han recibido el sacramento de la Primera Comunión. Esto es una gran ofensa al milagro de poder recibir el Preciosisímo Cuerpo y la Preciosisíma Sangre de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo presente en la Hostia.

No debemos olivdar nunca que la manera en la que debemos recibir la Comunión debe ser reverente ya que "por la actitud corporal (gestos, vestido) se manifiesta el respeto, la solemnidad, el gozo de ese momento en que Cristo se hace nuestro huésped. (CIC 1387)"
