What Shall I Do To Be Saved?

By Rev. Dr. Curian Kaniyamparambil

Question 78. What are the prerequisites that should be completed before partaking in the Holy Eucharist?

"Therefore whoever eats this bread and drink this cup of Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. Let a man examine himself and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup" (1 Cori. 11:27, 28).

What have you to examine? What does it mean? A person has to examine if he or she is sinful or not. If you are sinful you are not worthy to receive Jesus Christ. Now the question is, how to know if one is sinful or not. What is sin?

So we learned what sin is and how to cleanse our sins, and thus purify us to be worthy to participate in the Holy Eucharist.
