Title: The essence of the Cross

@gbolahan_kashim

If the cross has no meaning to you then you don't have the faith yet.

The gospel of Christ is not outside the cross.
The cross of Christ is a place of encounter with Christ.

The cross is a place of an exchange where new life is obtained.

The cross is a place where our sin is exchanged for righteousness.

The cross is a place where we enter God.
Essence: the property, the most significant element, quality or aspect of a thing or person.

Element of Mercy.
Mercy is a reality in God given to us by the sovereignty of God. It shields us from what we truly deserve. Exodus 34:6, Lamentations 3:22

1. SIGN OF THE CROSS:

The first act of each day should be the Sign of the Cross. It involves the body and soul and is an expression of our faith in a nutshell. The basic doctrines of three Persons in one Godhead and the Son becoming man and dying on the Cross for our salvation
1b) are all contained in this act of faith. After making the Sign of the Cross, it is well to add: "Behold I come to do Your will, O God."

LAUD, O ZION (LAUDA SION SALVATOREM)

1. Sing forth, O Zion, sweetly sing,
The praises of thy Shepherd-King,
In hymns and canticles divine;
Dare all thou canst, thou hast no song,
Worthy his praises to prolong,
So far surpassing powers like thine.

#CorpusChristi #Christianity
2. Today no theme of common praise
Forms the sweet burden of thy lays –
The living, life-dispensing food –
That food which at the sacred board
Unto the brethren twelve our Lord
His parting legacy bestowed.

#CorpusChristi #CatholicChurch #faith #Christianity #CorpusChristi2020
3. Then be the anthem clear and strong,
Thy fullest note, thy sweetest song,
The very music of the breast:
For now shines forth the day sublime
That brings remembrance of the time
When Jesus first his table blessed.

BEHOLD THE BREAD OF ANGELS (ECCE PANIS ANGELORUM)

Behold the Bread of Angels, made the food of wayfarers, truly the bread of children, not to be given to the dogs.
Presignified by figure, when Isaac was immolated, the Paschal Lamb was commanded, manna was given to the fathers.
Good shepherd, true bread, Jesus, have mercy on us:
feed us,protect us, make us to see good things in the land of the living.
Thou who knowest and willest all things,who feeds us mortals by this:
make thine own to be partakers of,co-heirs and citizens in that holy city of saints.

CHAPLET OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

~thread~
1. Say on the medal – Spiritual Communion: “My Jesus, I believe that thou art present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love thee above all things. I desire to receive thee into my soul.

#SpiritualCommunion #HolyCommunion #spirituality
2. Since I cannot now receive thee sacramentally, come, at least, spiritually into my heart. I embrace thee, and I unite myself entirely to thee, as if thou hadst already come; do not permit me to be ever separated from thee.” – St Liguori

#JesusChrist #Sacraments #Christianity
3. Say on each bead (x33):

“Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, have mercy on us.”

[The Holy Father has granted to the entire world an Indulgence of 300 days each time the above ejaculation is recited.]

THE TRUE HOLY COMMUNION
by Oziọma Ọdịnanị

Where we raise the kolanut made by God.
They raise the bread made by man.

Then we declare "He who brings kola brings life"
They too declare "This is the bread of life".

We offer thanks,
They offer thanks.
We offer wine
They offer wine

Then we bless the congregation
They too bless their congregation

We call on our Ndichie and #worthyAncestors; Okeke,Okafọ, Okonkwo, Okorie, Igbokwe, Odenigbo and Igbokenyi, in "the communion of the living and the
dead" to partake in our kola,

They too call their #Ndichie and ancestors; St. Peter,St.Cyprian, St. Caro, St. Mark and Kizito to partake in their rite, in "the communion of the living and the dead"

Then we break and eat the concecrated kolanut,
