Prayer is the best preparation for Holy Communion.  Prayer is the raising of the mind to God.  When we pray we go to meet Christ Who is coming to us.  If our Creator and Savior comes from heaven with such great love, it is only fitting that we should go to meet Him.  And this is what we do when we spend some time in prayer.

--St. Bernardine of Siena
