Act of worship as prayer of petition

Sunday sermons, weekday observations

“I remember [deceased friend] well despite the passage of many years since we were [Jesuit novices] together in 1959.

“Received Communion for [him] and for all of you this morning as I frequently do. God bless us all.”

Am finding this worthy of note. “Receiving Communion” for someone, dating to the late ’50s, when writer became accustomed to, or more likely, had grown up Catholic with, this idea, which puts reception of communion in class with prayer of petition.
