Constitutionality of Prayer 100%

 Questioning  the  constitutionality  of  Christian  prayers   without  subjecting  atheist  practices  to  the  same  scrutiny,  seems  to  evidence  a  deeply  held   political  bias.

FROM THE PRAYERS OF PREPARATION FOR COMMUNION  REGARDING “WORTHINESS” OF THE HOLY MYSTERIES    In the prayers for preparation for Holy Communion, written by several  different  Holy  Fathers,  we  find  the  repetition  of  this  belief  in  utter  unworthiness for Holy Communion, whether one has fasted or not. Note also,  that among the Fathers who wrote these prayers are St. Basil the Great and St.  John Chrysostom, the greatest luminaries among the Anatolian‐Cappadocian  Fathers. Yet these most awesome and splendid examples of sanctity, whether  they fasted “in the finer and broader sense,” as Metropolitan Kirykos calls it,  by  no  means  considered  themselves  “worthy  to  commune.”  For  it  is  not  abstaining from foods that make one worthy, but rather abstaining from sins,  and all men have sinned save Christ who alone is perfect, and save Theotokos  who  is  the  purest  temple  of  the  Lord  from  her  very  childhood,  but  was  hallowed, sanctified and consecrated by God at the hour of the Annunciation.  The rest of us are sinners, even the saints, but their holiness is owing to God’s  mercy upon them due to their purity of life, and their theosis is owing to the  grace of God that overshadowed them, as they lived every day in Christ.     The  fact that the saints were  not  worthy  in and of  themselves, but  by  the  grace  of  God,  can  be  well  understood  by  reading  their  prayers  of  preparation  for  Holy  Communion.  For  these  prayers  were  written  by  saints  who,  in  their  shortcomings,  were  also  sinners;  and  they  wrote  these  prayers  for  the  sake  of  sinners  who,  just  like  them,  strive  by  God’s  grace  to  become  saints. Thus, in the second troparion in the preparation for Holy Communion  we read: “How can I, the unworthy one, shamelessly dare to partake of Thy Holy  Gifts?”  In  the  last  few  troparia  in  the  service  of  preparation  for  Holy  Communion, we read: “Into the splendor of Thy Saints how shall I, the unworthy  one, enter?...” and again “O Man‐befriending Master, Lord Jesus my God, let not  these holy Gifts be unto me for judgment through mine unworthiness…”    St. Basil the Great (+ 1 January, 397), in his first prayer of preparation  for Holy Communion, writes: “… For I have sinned, O Lord, I have sinned against  Heaven  and  before  Thee,  and  I  am  not  worthy  to  gaze  upon  the  height  of  Thy  glory… Wherefore, though I am unworthy of both heaven and earth, and even of this  transient life…” In his second prayer we read: “I know, O Lord, that I partake of  Thine immaculate Body and precious Blood unworthily, and that I am guilty, and  eat and drink judgment to myself, not discerning the Body and Blood of Thee, my  Christ and God…”     St.  John  Chrysostom  (+14  September,  407),  in  his  first  prayer  of  preparation  for  Holy  Communion,  writes:  “O  Lord  my  God,  I  know  that  I  am  not worthy, nor sufficient, that Thou shouldest come under the roof of the house of  my soul, for all is desolate and fallen, and Thou hast not in me a place worthy to  lay Thy head…” In his third prayer we read: “O Lord Jesus Christ my God, loose,  remit,  forgive,  and  pardon  the  failings,  faults,  and  offences  which  I,  Thy  sinful,  unprofitable,  and  unworthy  servant  have  committed  from  my  youth,  up  to  the  present day and hour…”    If in any place in the prayers of preparation for Holy Communion there  is  a  statement  of  worthiness  within  man,  it  is  claimed  that  Christ  and  the  Mysteries  themselves  are  the  source  of  that  worthiness.  By  no  means  are  mankind’s own works, such as fasting, considered to make one worthy. Thus,  Blessed Chrysostom writes: “I believe, O Lord, and I confess that thou art truly the  Christ, the Son of the living God, who didst come into the world to save sinners,  of whom I am chief. And I believe that this is truly Thine own immaculate Body,  and  that  this is truly Thine  own precious Blood. Wherefore I  pray  thee, have mercy  upon me and forgive my transgressions both voluntary and involuntary, of word and  of deed, of knowledge and of ignorance; and make me worthy to partake without  condemnation of Thine immaculate Mysteries, unto remission of my sins and  unto life everlasting. Amen.”    St.  Symeon  the  Translator  (+9  November,  c.  950)  writes:  “…O  Christ  Jesus, Wisdom and Peace and Power of God, Who in Thy assumption of our nature  didst suffer Thy life‐giving and saving Passion, the Cross, the Nails, the Spear, and  Death,  mortify  all  the  deadly  passions  of  my  body.  Thou  Who  in  Thy  burial  didst spoil the dominions of hell, bury with good thoughts my evil schemes and  scatter  the  spirits  of  wickedness.  Thou  Who  by  Thy  life‐giving  Resurrection  on  the  third  day  didst  raise  up  our  fallen  first  Parent,  raise  me  up  who  am  sunk  in  sin  and  suggest  to  me  ways  of  repentance.  Thou  Who  by  Thy  glorious  Ascension  didst deify our nature which Thou hadst assumed and didst honor it by Thy session at  the  right  hand  of  the  Father,  make  me  worthy  by  partaking  of  Thy  holy  Mysteries of a place at Thy right hand among those who are saved. Thou Who  by  the  descent  of  the  Spirit,  the  Paraclete,  didst  make  Thy  holy  Disciples  worthy  vessels, make me also a recipient of His coming. Thou Who art to come again to  judge  the  World  with  justice,  grant  me  also  to  meet  Thee  on  the  clouds,  my  Maker  and  Creator,  with  all  Thy  Saints,  that  I  may  unendingly  glorify  and  praise  Thee with Thy Eternal Father and Thy all‐holy and good and life‐giving Spirit, now  and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.”    St. Symeon the New Theologian (+12 March, 1022) wrote a poem that  clearly explains how a communicant must regard himself as utterly unworthy  to  receive  the  Holy Body and  Blood  of  the  Lord,  and  entirely hope  in  God’s  mercy:  From sullied lips,   From an abominable heart,   From an unclean tongue,   Out of a polluted soul,   Receive my prayer, O my Christ.   Reject me not,   Nor my words, nor my ways,   Nor even my shamelessness,   But give me courage to say   What I desire, my Christ.   And even more, teach me   What to do and say.   I have sinned more than the harlot…  And all my sins   Take from me, O God of all,   That with a clean heart,   Trembling mind   And contrite spirit   I may partake of Thy pure   And all‐holy Mysteries   By which all who eat and drink Thee   With sincerity of heart   Are quickened and deified…  Therefore I fall at Thy feet   And fervently cry to Thee:   As Thou receivedst the Prodigal   And the Harlot who drew near to Thee,   So have compassion and receive me,   The profligate and the prodigal,   As with contrite spirit   I now draw near to Thee.   I know, O Saviour, that no other   Has sinned against Thee as I,   Nor has done the deeds   That I have committed.   But this again I know   That not the greatness of my offences   Nor the multitude of my sins   Surpasses the great patience   Of my God,   And His extreme love for men.   But with the oil of compassion   Those who fervently repent   Thou dost purify and enlighten   And makest them children of the light,   Sharers of Thy Divine Nature…    St.  John  Damascene  (+4  December,  749),  in  his  first  prayer  of  preparation  for  Holy  Communion,  thus  writes:  “O  Lord  and  Master  Jesus  Christ, our God, who alone hath power to forgive the sins of men, do thou, O Good  One who lovest mankind, forgive all the sins that I have committed in knowledge or  in  ignorance,  and  make  me  worthy  to  receive  without  condemnation  thy  divine, glorious, immaculate and life‐giving Mysteries; not unto punishment  or  unto  increase  of  sin;  but  unto  purification,  and  sanctification  and  a  promise of thy Kingdom and the Life to come; as a protection and a help to  overthrow the adversaries, and to blot out my many sins. For thou art a God of  Mercy  and  compassion  and  love  toward  mankind,  and  unto  Thee  we  ascribe  glory  together  with  the  Father  and  the  Holy  Spirit;  now  and  ever,  and  unto  ages  of  ages.  Amen.”     In his second prayer he writes: “I stand before the gates of thy Temple, and  yet I refrain not from my evil thoughts. But do thou, O Christ my God, who didst  justify  the  publican,  and  hadst  mercy  on  the  Canaanite  woman,  and  opened  the gates of Paradise to the thief; open unto me the compassion of thy love toward  mankind, and receive me as I approach and touch thee, like the sinful woman and  the woman with the issue of blood; for the one, by embracing thy feet received the  forgiveness  of  her  sins,  and  the  other  by  but  touching  the  hem  of  thy  garment  was  healed. And I, most sinful, dare to partake of thy whole Body. Let me not be consumed  but receive me as thou didst receive them, and enlighten the perceptions of my  soul, consuming the accusations of my sins; through the intercessions of Her that  without stain gave Thee birth, and of the heavenly Powers; for thou art blessed unto  ages of ages. Amen.”    While waiting in line to receive Holy Communion, the following verses  of the Blessed Translator are read:  Behold I approach for Divine Communion.  O Creator, let me not be burnt by communicating,  For Thou art Fire which burns the unworthy.  But purify me from every stain.   Tremble, O man, when you see the deifying Blood,  For it is coal that burns the unworthy.  The Body of God both deifies and nourishes;  It deifies the spirit and wondrously nourishes the mind.      The  following  troparion  clearly  expresses  with  what  mindset  and  manner  one  must  approach  the  Mysteries.  Let  it  not  be  thought  that  a  Christian is meant to state the following simply as an act of false humility. On  the contrary, the Christian must truly deny any sense of his self‐worth in the  eyes  of  Christ,  and  must  therefore  submit  himself  entirely  to  Christ’s  judgment, praying that the Lord will judge according to his great mercy and  not according to our sins. The troparion reads: “Of thy Mystic Supper, O Son of  God, accept me today as a communicant; for I will not speak of thy Mystery to Thine  enemies, neither will I give thee a kiss as did Judas; but like the thief will I confess  thee: Remember me, O Lord, in Thy Kingdom. Remember me, O Master, in Thy  Kingdom. Remember me, O Holy One, when Thou comest into Thy Kingdom.” After  a few other troparia, the following prayer is read: “Sovereign Lover of men, Lord  Jesus  my  God,  let  not  these  Holy  Things  be  to  me  for  judgment  through  my  being  unworthy,  but  for  the  purification  and  sanctification  of  my  soul  and  body, and as a pledge of the life and kingdom to come. For it is good for me to  cling to God and to place in the Lord my hope of salvation.”    As  one  approaches  the  Holy  Chalice,  one  should  crosswise  fold  his  hands over his chest, and reflect in his mind the following petition: “Neither  unto  judgement,  nor  unto  condemnation  be  my  partaking  of  thy  Holy  Mysteries,  O  Lord,  but  unto  the  healing  of  soul  and  body.”  When  the  priest  administers the Holy Communion he announces: “The servant of God, [name],  partakes of the precious, most holy and most pure Body and Blood of our Lord, God  and Saviour, Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins and life everlasting. Amen.”  Then, the communicant kisses the bottom of the chalice, thinking of himself as  the harlot who kissed the feet of the Lord while anointing them with precious  myrrh and her penitent tears, while contemplating the Seraphim who touched  a  burning  coal  to  the  mouth  of  Isaiah,  saying:  “Behold,  This  hath  touched  thy  lips, and will take away thine iniquities, and will purge thy sins (Isaiah 6:7).”
