Communion Claims

Tune: Anima Christi

('Soul of my Saviour, sanctify my breast')


Lord, when we may your holy feast approach

Penitent, you will accept, not reproach

Trusting in you for your forgiveness, life

Eternal, though not gained  through earthly strife


But by your grace we may now here partake

Offer you ourselves for your goodness sake

Eating of bread and drinking of wine true

These are the things you chose to symbolise you


It be food and drink for our spirits, souls

And for our bodies, you will make us whole

Cause us to search our hearts and minds before

We come to receive of your rich treasure store


For 'tis our treasure, heavenly gifts shown

Your desire, Lord, they to the world b known

Here is how man to God be reconciled

It be by your offering made undefiled


Your life given that we might live, e'en me

Your taking my place there upon the tree (cross)

Then rose again, your risen life we share

By your mercies to us, just , meek, and fair

      Good Morning Uncle Steve ~ A great start to Sunday love the Choir & the Hymn & the Poem ! Just off to Church ~ Im a GREETER this morning (On*t Door as they say in*t North !). I will meet Angela @ Church and then to her parents for Lunch. Fortunately (or is it Divine Providence ?) her parants are very fond of Me and treat me *Como un Hijo* like a Son. My Parents treat Angela *Como una Hija !* We both love the Communion Service ~ Whether its the Pomp & Circumstance of the Catholic Mass in the Cathedral or A Fire Baked Loaf & Ribena @ Summer Camp ~ it is equally significant !

      CHRIST has once suffered for Sins
      The just for the unjust
      In order to bring us ~ Back to GOD ~ AMEN !

      Blessings to You & Inspector Hound
      Love in the Spirit ANGELA & BRIAN
