The holy season of Lent which has just begun, should be an occasion for us to think oftener and more seriously than ordi narily of the salvation of our soul. For this reason Holy Church offers us more frequent Opportunities than at any other time of the year, by impressive services and sermons, to think over the great truths, which should in particular impel and move us to care for the salvation of our soul. There is, however, no other means of salvation, which exerts such power in the Christian life, and which is more adapted, if properly understood and brought into daily life, to unite man and his heart with God, to take him away from every day worldly life, and lead him to God, than the doctrine of the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. The Blessed Sacrament is not only the source from whence all the graces of salvation ﬂow to us, but it is the center of our whole spiritual life, from the cradle to the grave, and it is the center of the whole Catholic worship of God. We know that to honor and to love Jesus Christ in the Most [holy Sacrament of the Altar should be our joy and happiness: the worship of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist gives us blessing and happi ness for body and soul, consolation and strength in life and death. With the help of God we will take for our Lenten considera tion this year the doctrine of the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar; namely, the Catholic teaching of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
