PM: Communion Fridays--4th. Sunday Of Ordinary Time

There are two antiphons for this day. The first is for Cycle A; the second, the other two.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God; blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God; blessed are those who suffer persecution for the sake of justice, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 
Matt. 5:8, 9, 10
This is also the antiphon for the Solemnity of All Saints. As part of the Beatitudes are presented, we are also to recount all the blessing bestowed by God. And do we not see God as we view the Sacred Species?
Let your face shine down upon your servant, deliver me in your mercy. Lord, let me not be confounded, for I have called upon you. 
Ps. 30:17, 18
We seek the face of God so to live. We ask for forgiveness of our sins. But, are we truly disposed? Have we reformed our lives to Christ? Have we made frequent use of the Sacrament of Reconciliation?
