Communion rail: place of exchange...

 So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, 
continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, 
strengthened in the faith as you were taught, 
and overflowing in thankfulness. - Colossians 2: 6,7


“The communion rail is a place of exchange. 
The people give time and receive eternity
they give self-denial and receive life
they give nothingness and receive all. 

Holy Communion commits each to a closer union 
not only with Christ’s life, but also with His death – 
to greater detachment from the world, 
to surrender of luxuries for the sake of the poor, 
to death of the old Adam 
for rebirth in Christ, the new Adam.”

Ven Fulton Sheen 
From The Priest is Not His Own
(Excellent read for Lent!)

Consider daily Mass attendance 
for the 40 days of Lent!
