The following reflections are from His Grace, Bishop Paul (Gassios) of Chicago.  From 2007 - 2014, Bishop Paul was the Dean of St. George Cathedral.  In his words, "This section is an attempt to come to terms with the relationship that exists between partaking of Holy Communion and 1) how we prepare for it, 2) our belief in the Christian faith, and 3) the kind of moral life we live."  Please enjoy and also visit the Diocese of the Midwest webpage at
