PM: Communion Fridays--24th. Sunday Of Ordinary Time

There are three options, one for each of the Cycles.
Bring up your sacrifices and come into his courts; adore the Lord in his holy temple.
Ps. 95:8, 9
An echo of  "Adeste Fideles", we arrived at the ultimate place of worship. The Manger and the Cross, altars in their own ways, uphold the Real Presence for our adoration.
If a man wishes to come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.
Matt. 16:24
A repeat of one from the 12th. Sunday of Ordinary Time, we are confronted again with the Cross. The "sign of contradiction" is the true symbol of Christian discipleship.
I say unto you: there is joy among the Angels of God for one single sinner who repents.
Luke 15:10
One of the three options from the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart, here we see a part of the depth of love Jesus has for us. The joy of Heaven is eternally profound when we "turn from sin and believe in the Gospel."
