TO ALL CATHOLICS

Ettiquette is not only about behaviour at a party or formal meeting.

THERE IS ALSO ETTIQUETTE FOR HOLY MASS
WHICH IS MOSTLY NEGLECTED

20 THINGS TO REMEMBER BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER MASS :

1. One must fast for at least 1 hour before receiving Holy Communion. The only exceptions are medicine, water or unless someone is ill and needs to eat sooner.

2. Don’t pack a snack basket for kids. It’s no picnic. The only exceptions would be milk for infants, water for the priest or choir and sick.

3. Don’t bite your nails, it indicates nervousness. Don’t shake your legs, it indicates tension. Don’t fidget with your hair, it indicates distraction. You may haven’t been taught this when you were young, that it is wrong to focus on any other person or object, when the focus should be on God alone.

4. Never chew gum in Church. It breaks your fast.

5. Cross yourself with Holy Water on entering and leaving the church. This is a reminder of our Baptism, which made us members of Christ’s Church.

6. Dress cleanly neatly and modestly, the mass is not a fashion show. And Christmas and Easter masses are not a part of Fashion Week.
Dress in a way that gives witness to Christ and to your faith
Dressing should not be with the intention to attract others or to get the attention of Others or to seduce anyone.

Don’t go for mass to check out who is attractively or badly dressed in the church .

7. Come early and be as close to the altar as possible. Don’t walk in when half the mass is over. Don’t stand outside the Church. One shouldn’t go for mass for the heck of it or to be noticed or to please others or to avoid uncomfortable questions.

8. Cell phones should never be used during Mass for checking messages, making calls or texting. Keep them on silent mode. No call is more important than mass.

9. Youngsters should offer their seats to the pregnant, sick or aged who are standing.

10. When we enter and leave Church, genuflect (bow your knee) toward the Tabernacle. Christ is present for our sake. By allowing our right knee to hit the floor, we acknowledge He is our Lord and God. If someone is physically unable to genuflect, then a bow is sufficient. During Mass, if you pass in front of the altar or tabernacle, bow reverently.

11. Sit quietly in Church. Don’t talk or make comments in the church on what others wear.
You don’t go there to judge anyone’s dressing style, make -up or accessories.

12. Take loud children behind. Sometimes the baby will be restless. Parents with young kids should sit at the end of a pew, so that you can take the kid behind quickly. Don’t joke with them & disturb others during Mass. Stop them from playing with hymn books and reading material. Don’t joke or play with toddlers during mass.

13. Prepare your offering before Mass. Christ tells us not to let your left hand know what your right hand is doing when you make your offering. Keeping the basket while you get your wallet out can be quite a scene. Digging the basket for change is wrong. Come to mass with your offering prepared.

14. No sleeping, day-dreaming, bulletin reading or fun making during mass. Be serious and sincere, Pay attention to God’s Word.

15. Respect the worship. Stand during the gospel reading and other set time during worship. Kneel at the consecration, it is part of worship. The only exceptions are for the sick, people with knee problems, aged and those with infants. If you can’t kneel occupy a pew that does not obstruct the view of the Lord from those who do kneel.

16. Bow before receiving Holy Communion, you are before God.

17. Say Amen and bow before receiving Communion. Do not drop the host, or play with it with your tongue or bite it.

18. Do not leave early. We should stay to the end of the final blessing and the recessional hymn that accompanies it, if there is one. Remember who left the Last Supper early (Judas).

19. Pray after Mass, thanking God for His abundant blessings.

20. Leave quietly. We encourage you to visit others especially your priests as a part of Christian fellowship, but once yo

!2018 – 10 benefits of Castor Oil

reTwogger: 180520tko

1. A natural purgative

One of the better-known uses of castor oil is in the relief of constipation. This painful condition poses health threats it not treated promptly. A dose of fifty grams of castor oil mixed into warm milk (perhaps with a little added ginger) gets the waste moving through the colon out of the system. Since castor oil happens to be so rich in fatty acids, it does not easily get absorbed in the intestines, and so it performs its bowel emptying function very effectively. However, be careful not to overdo the dose as too much castor oil can also be harmful.

2. Provides a booster to your natural immune system

The human body’s immune system defends it against infection and disease. Weak immune systems expose you to a range of potentially serious risks. The strength of your immune system depends in part on diet, exercise and genetic factors. Any substance that boosts this system’s effectiveness performs a valuable service. The benefits castor oil brings in this context include improved blood flow, encouraging the creation of the lymphocyte white blood cells that fight bacteria, and enhancing the health of the thymus gland.

3. Helps ensure that you get a good night’s sleep

Problems of insomnia are nothing new, but twenty-first-century lifestyles seem to have aggravated them. So many people seem to find it hard to get to sleep and have sufficient sleep. The wide use of sleeping tablets shows so many trying to overcome insomnia. It is definitely much safer to try a natural insomnia cure. Castor oil advocates claim that rubbing the eyelids with castor oil at bedtime relaxes the body and this encourages you to fall into a refreshing sleep.

4. Aids the body to fight off fungal infections

The undecylenic acid found in castor oil helps to stop the development of fungal infections. The natural medicine experts believe that it offers a cure for common yeast infections and athletes foot. It receives many recommendations for its role as a good treatment for ringworm. Statistics show that almost one out of five people get this skin condition at least once in their lives. Castor oil offers a safe means to kill off this infection without raising the concerns associated with some of the drugs supplied by pharmacies.

5. Protection against burned skin

Anyone exposed to strong sunlight for a period should protect their skin with clothing and suntan lotion. Nevertheless, it is difficult to avoid painful sunburn every time, so it is good to know that castor oil helps relieve sunburn pains. The ricinoleic acid it contains guard blistered skin against infection. It also reduces the inflammations sunburn so easily causes. Just make sure you do not apply too much castor oil to your skin since overuse can also do damage.

6. The cosmetic value of castor oil

People have discovered that castor oil can help to improve their complexions. For example, some use as a remedy for that blight of the teenage years, acne. The ointments commonly sold in pharmacies usually contain commbenzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid that dry out the skin. In contrast, castor oil moisturizes the skin while cleansing it. Some use it as a general facial cleaner to remove spots and dead skin. However, since a few people might have an allergy, apply a small patch of castor oil to your arm. Leave the oil in place for a day, and if there is no allergic reaction, you know it is safe to use on your face.

7. Aids a woman to give birth

While the complications of premature births receive plenty of publicity, it is also not so healthy for a birth delay that does far past the due date. Doctors induce birth after a certain amount of time passes, but this can be very unpleasant. If the expectant woman drinks a spoonful or two of castor oil, it could stimulate the bowels and start contractions. Yet because of the risks of taking too much castor oil, or setting off an allergy, only use this birthing aid with a doctor’s knowledge and approval.

8. Get rid of that migraine

If someone suffers regularly from migraines or headaches they should get a checkup – perhaps all they need is a new pair of spectacles, or they have a more serious health issue. For those who get an occasional headache, castor oil offers real relief. Take a teaspoon of the oil and rub it into your forehead for a minute. Those painful migraine symptoms start to become less severe within a few minutes of this treatment.

9. A possible remedy for hair loss

The search for a cure for hair loss has occupied people for ages. Instead of seeking a solution in some mysterious compound marketed by someone with dubious medical qualifications, humble castor oil could offer a cheap and effective solution. If applied to hair roots on a regular basis it can improve hair and scalp quality, and even encourage hair growth.

10. Helpful in arthritis treatments

Could castor oil have a role to play in treatments of painful and potentially debilitating arthritis conditions? The idea sounds very strange, but natural healers say that it contains anti-inflammatory substances that help relieve arthritis pains. They suggest the sufferer massages affected joints with castor oil, and for maximum effect, drink a few teaspoon of castor oil mixed with warm water.
