Mass and being in sanctifying grace

"If I assist at the Holy Mass with Faith and the due deep reverence before God, then Jesus takes me with my whole life, work, worries and suffering into His sacrifice on the Cross, in which He gave Himself for the Father for the sake of the salvation of the world, so that we can live in God, from God, and for God now and for ever. The sacramental Communion leads us into spiritual communion with Christ, if we are in the state of Sanctifying Grace – in the Baptismal Grace which we either have preserved in life or have gained back with the help of the Sacrament of Penance – and if we receive it with the love for God above all and with the love for our neighbor as for ourselves. This communion is a unity with Jesus Christ in His true humanity and divinity."

We need to be in a state of sanctifying grace otherwise all this about the reform of the reform or restoration of tradition is useless.  Our end is with God and if we do something apart from him its useless.  Join the HOLY LEAGUE
