Loving The Bride, vol. 23

Something old...


Can. 208 From their rebirth in Christ, there exists among all the Christian faithful a true equality regarding dignity and action by which they all cooperate in the building up of the Body of Christ according to each one’s own condition and function.

Can. 209 §1. The Christian faithful, even in their own manner of acting, are always obliged to maintain communion with the Church.

§2. With great diligence they are to fulfill the duties which they owe to the universal Church and the particular church to which they belong according to the prescripts of the law.

Can. 210 All the Christian faithful must direct their efforts to lead a holy life and to promote the growth of the Church and its continual sanctification, according to their own condition.

Can. 211 All the Christian faithful have the duty and right to work so that the divine message of salvation more and more reaches all people in every age and in every land.

Can. 212 §1. Conscious of their own responsibility, the Christian faithful are bound to follow with Christian obedience those things which the sacred pastors, inasmuch as they represent Christ, declare as teachers of the faith or establish as rulers of the Church.

To Our Lady for the Protection of the Home

Holy Mary, Virgin Mother of God, who was conceived without sin, we choose you this day as the lady and mistress of this house. We beseech you through your Immaculate Conception to preserve us from pestilence, fire, and water; from lightning and tempests; from robbers, from schisms and heresies; from earthquakes; and from sudden and unprovided death. Bless and protect us, O holy Virgin; obtain for us the grace to avoid all sin and every other misfortune and accident.

Praised forever be the most holy Sacrament of the altar! In You, O Lord, have we put our trust; let us never be confounded. Amen.
