The Precepts of the Church: The Precepts of the Catholic Church are a description of the absolute minimum actions required of Catholics regarding the Church. Intentional violation of the precepts or the Commandments is a grave matter, meaning a mortal sin.
This week we will look at the third precept: You shall receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at least during the Easter season. This “guarantees as a minimum the reception of the Lord’s Body and Blood in connection with the Paschal feasts, the origin and center of the Christian liturgy.” Remember, it is advisable to go beyond the minimum.
Always remember: the precepts of the Catholic Church are minimum levels of participation in the life of the Church. Out of love for Christ and a desire to advance in the spiritual life, you will normally try to do far more than they require Receive the sacrament of the Eucharist at every Mass, if you meet the guidelines for reception (are free from mortal sin, etc.).
