Friends, The Catechism asks: what is required of them who come to the Lord's Supper? "To examine themselves, whether they truly repent of their former sins, stedfastly purposing to lead the new life; have a living faith in God's mercy through Christ, with a thankful remembrance of His death; and be in charity with all men". How far must a baptised, confirmed Christian go in repenting before communing? How does he know his soul is ready to receive the Body and the Blood of the Saviour? How much faith is enough? How much repenting is enough?
