Lenten Schedule 2104 - Plano
The Sacrament of the Altar
Ash Wednesday March 5
Lent 2 March 12 The Nature of the Lord’s Supper: Jesus, through His Word, gives us bread and wine and His true body and true blood. The Supper is a gift spoken into reality.
Lent 3 March 19 The Benefit of the Lord’s Supper: Our greatest need is forgiveness. Christ won forgiveness for us on the cross and He distributes this for us in the Lord’s Supper.
Lent 4 March 26 The Power of the Lord’s Supper: The Lord’s Supper is to be received by faith alone because it is a gift for you. Without true faith there is no forgiveness of sins.
Lent 5 April 2 How to Receive This Sacrament Worthily: St Paul warns against eating and drinking in an unworthy manner. Faith sees Christ present “for you” offering His very body and blood and the forgiveness of sins.
Lent 6 April 9 Christian Questions with Their Answers: St. Paul says that we ought to examine ourselves before we commune. How do we examine ourselves?
