Significance and symbolism of subsequent parts of the Holy Mass: Holy Communion

Holy Communion. The heart that has been cleansed, the heart full of sorrow for sins, the heart wishing for improvement and hungry for God, is to the martyred Christ a prize and a consolation for all the suffering. Thus, the heart of man should be clean, full of faith in the effectiveness of such a great Sacrifice, full of trust in God’s Mercy, and full of love and gratitude towards Christ. The heart of man becomes the center of the universe, hosting God in itself. Now is the time to thank, to comfort and to ask for mercy for oneself and the whole world, so that the fruit issued in such suffering would not be wasted in us.
