Caravaggio’s Inspiration of Saint Matthew, from the Chiesa di San Luigi dei Francesci
As the Council of Trent teaches, Communion is that great remedy which frees us from venial, and preserves us against mortal sins.
It is said ”from daily faults”, because according to St. Thomas, a man is excited by means of this sacrament to make acts of love, by which venial sins are forgiven. And it is said that “we are preserved from mortal sins”, because Communion increases grace, which will preserve us from great faults.
Hence Innocent III says, that Jesus Christ delivered us from the power of sin by his Passion, but that by the Eucharist he delivers us from the power of sinning.
St. Alphonsus Liguori
