Catechism of the Day

The Sacrament of the Altar continued

Who, then, receives such Sacrament worthily?

Fasting and bodily preparation are indeed a fine outward training; but he is truly worthy and well prepared who has faith in these words,

"Given and shed for you for the remission of sins."

But he that does not believe these words, or doubts, is unworthy and unprepared; for the words "for you" require all hearts to believe.

Quis utitur hoc sacramento digne?

Ieiunare et corpus suum praeparare est quidem bona et externa disciplina. At ille est vere dignus ac probe paratus, qui habet fidem in haec verba:

“Pro vobis datur et effunditur in remissionem peccatorum.”

Qui vero his verbis non credit aut de illis dubitat, ille est indignus ac imparatus, quia hoc verbum, “Pro vobis,” postulat omnino cor, quod Deo credat.
