Predict our sins

On the feast of St. Demetrios the Great Martyr this past Wednesday Bishop Atanasije (Rakita) of Milesevo in his homily said, among other things, about Christians need  always be prepared for communion, even though we know are not prepared enough for it:

“If the Lord would wait for us to be prepared for Holy Communion, we know that we’d never take communion. This is why we pray to God that He predict our sins, that He forgive them, for even the Angels are not worthy to be at His presence much less mortal man. We place our hope in His mercy and this is why we partake of His Body and His Blood which gives life to us Christians.”
