10 – The exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

10. From the Book of LEVITICUS

Fancy letter Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu took their censers, put fire in them and added incense; and they offered unauthorized fire before the Lord, contrary to his command. So fire came out from the presence of the Lord and consumed them, and they died before the Lord. Moses then said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord spoke of when He said: “‘Among those who approach Me I will be proved Holy; in the sight of all the people I will be honored.” Aaron remained silent.

lEV 10, 1-3

 

10. The exposition of the Blessed Sacrament

21.05.2017

God the Father:  Holy robes and incense smoke were not only supposed to protect Me against human unworthiness, but also to protect priests against their own sinfulness and the evil spirit, to whom the incense conceals holy things, including priestly souls, and whom its fragrance suffocates more than the sulfur fumes in Hell. Priestly vestments: the cassock, the chasuble, the cape and the veil, like the tunic, the linen trousers, the belt and the tiara in the Old Order, protect the priest from his own weakness and inclination to evil. Holy robes are like an armor, which does not allow the evil spirit to gain access to the priestly soul.

The exposition of the Blessed Sacrament should be accompanied by particular reverence and praise, which would emphasize the importance of this event. Special prayers and sounds have been introduced for this purpose. These are not additional and arbitrary regulations, but regulations commanded from above by the Holy Spirit leading the Church. The sound of bells also scares off evil spirits and sanctifies the external part of this event. The same applies to the sound of bells or gong during the benediction with the Blessed Sacrament. As for the songs, My real presence is neglected and overlooked through them. I prefer silence to thoughtless singing of songs unsuitable for this event. The songs sang at that time should give praise to the mystery of My Divinity hidden under the holy forms. Singing songs with a different content is an affront to Me, even if the songs themselves were good and desirable in other circumstances. The singing of other songs also introduces unrest among the believers who, instead of kneeling, get up, walk or sit down, forgetting about My presence.


Translated from: Orędzia o czci i kulcie Boga, Grzechynia 2018, p. 75-81
