KINDNESS AND KIND THOUGHTS
by Rev. Lawrence G. Lovasik, S.V.D.

8. Pray for others. Pray that God may be glorified in and through them. Pray for the success of their work even more than for your own. Such unselfish charity will draw down God’s blessing upon your own work and will make it doubly fruitful.
Get into the habit of saying so-called “We” prayers with special interest. Make your petitions universal instead of self-centered. Place the accent on “we” rather than on “I.” Kindness is the spirit of all the prayers of the Church, such as the following:
O God, You desire that Your faithful be of one mind and heart. Grant, we beg of You, that Your people may love that which You have commanded and long for that which You have promised. Amid all the changes of earthly things, may our hearts remain grounded in that unity in which true joy is found, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
9. Frequent Holy Communion will increase and preserve love for your neigh-bor. It is the Banquet of Love which Christ prepared for the children of God at the very time when He declared to His Apostles His new commandment of love. The Eucharist is the bond of charity that unites all Christians as members of one spiritual Body, the Church, even as the soul gives life to each member of the human body. St. Paul says, “The Bread, which we break, is it not the partaking of the Body of the Lord? For we, being many, are one bread, one body, all that partake of one Bread” (1 Corinthians). By giving you a fuller share in the life of Christ, Holy Communion unites you more intimately to all the members of His Mystical Body, the Church.
Through frequent Holy Communion, Jesus will also give you help to carry out His great commandment of love for your neighbor and to put away all unkindness. He will give you the actual grace to love your neighbor as yourself for His sake and to respect and love Him as God’s image and likeness. Then you will look upon your neighbor as a child of your heavenly Father, as the temple of the Holy Ghost, as one to whom He gives Himself in Holy Communion, as one whom He identified with Himself. By frequent Holy Commun-ion you will learn to overcome your self-ishness, and to resist your natural feelings and reactions such as hatred and bitter-ness; you will develop kindness and sym-pathy, forbearance, and forgiveness; you will learn to think kindly of everyone and to find your happiness in making others happy.
SPIRITUAL CHECK-UP
1. Have I refused in my heart to forgive a person who has injured me?
2. Have I recalled, when hurt by others, how God has forgiven me for my many sins, and tried to forgive in the same generous spirt?
3. Have I nursed resentment against others, even though I did make an effort at forgiveness?
4. Has my sensitiveness caused me to be unfriendly towards others?
5. Have I cast a gloom over my sur-roundings by giving way to morose and sullen moods?
6. Have I permitted jealousy towards another to show in my conduct?
7. Do I deliberately harbor unkind and revengeful thoughts about others?
8. Have I attributed bad motives to others, when I could not be certain of their motives?
9. Am I inclined to be rude, impolite, too distant, or too harsh in my judg-ments?
10. Have I been sufficiently aware of the far-reaching power of my example, which influences others for good or bad, even when I do not advert to that influence?
11. Do I frequently remember these words of Christ, which apply to acts of charity: “As long as you did it to one of these My least brethren, you did it to Me”?
12. Do I wish my neighbor all the good things that I wish for myself?
13. Have I adopted the twofold motto: Never give pain, and promote the happiness of others whenever possible?

WORD OF INTRODUCTION

Requirements for Receiving Holy Communion
On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:

"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper."


In addition, all those who wish to receive  Holy Communion at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church must:    

● be validly baptized in the Roman Catholic Church.  Anyone who was baptized after 1970 must speak with the priest before receiving Holy Communion.
● hold all teachings and have a sufficient knowledge of the Catholic Faith.  One must believe and abide by traditional Catholic moral teaching, especially regarding purity of marriage.  Anyone who has received a marriage annulment since 1968 must talk to the priest before receiving Holy Communion.
● be in state of sanctifying grace to be able to receive Communion, having made a good confession to a traditional Roman Catholic priest.
● be fasting for three hours from solid food and alcoholic beverages and one hour from liquids other than water.  Water and non alcoholic medicines may be taken at any time.  (please note) Those who are able to do so, are encouraged to fast from midnight at those times when they plan to assist at a Mass scheduled for the morning.
Anyone who adheres to the teachings of Father Leonard Feeney and Saint Benedict Center (denying the Church’s teaching concerning “baptism of desire” and “baptism of blood”), who worships at religious services conducted by any of the CMRI bishops or clergy or Thuc bishops and clergy in concert with them, must not receive Holy Communion at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.

Ladies, as stated above, are required to wear dresses, or full skirts and blouses.  Hemlines must be long enough to touch the floor when kneeling. Necklines must be no more than two fingers-widths below the pit of the throat.  Slit skirts are not acceptable; a skirt is too tight if it needs to be slit to allow walking. Ladies are also required to wear a suitable head-covering while in church. Obviously, by the standards given by Pius XI, the wearing slacks, sleeveless dresses including “cap” sleeves(which are not sleeves at all), or low necklines are not suitably dress. Sleeves must cover the arms at least to the elbows.

Gentlemen also must wear modest and decent clothing in church and observe the prescript of Pope Pius XI as noted above.  Men must wear dress slacks and dress shirt, with sleeves which cover the arms at least to the elbows, preferably with suit coat  and tie.  If their attire is immodest or indecent, they should not enter the church.
Flip-flops, shorts, sweats and T-shirts are not acceptable attire in the church at any time. The wearing of revealing, tight-fitting and transparent garments of sheer material is forbidden in the Church.

Please do not come to receive Holy Communion at this church today if you do not meet these requirements. Rather, respect our standards and observe them.

************************

1. The question is, what exactly does it mean, to dress modestly?
2. What does the Catholic Church say on the matter?

On January 12, 1930, the sacred Congregation of the Council, by mandate of Pope Pius XI, has issued emphatic instructions on modesty of dress to all bishops, directing them to insist on these prescriptions:
"We recall that a dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth under the pit of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbows, and scarcely reaches a bit beyond the knee. Furthermore, dresses of transparent material are improper.

Women must be decently dressed, especially when they go to church. The parish priest may, with due prudence, refuse them entrance to the church and access to the reception of the Sacraments, [each] and every time that they come to church immodestly dressed." (General Pastoral Directive, 1915 A.D.)

"Girls and women dressed immodestly are to be debarred from Holy Communion and from acting as sponsors at the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation; further, if the offense be extreme, they may even be forbidden to enter the church." [Decree of the Congregation of the Council, 1930 A.D.]
