Let us rejoice in the Lord Jesus, our Bread of Life:
R. Happy are they who are invited to your table, Lord!
Priest of the new and eternal covenant, you offered the perfect sacrifice on the altar of the cross:
– grant us the grace to offer ourselves in union with you. (R.)
King of justice and peace, you deliver yourself over in the form of bread and wine:
– grant that we may receive you with faith. (R.)
Manna from heaven, you nourish your Church with your body and your blood:
– strengthen us in our journey to the Father. (R.)
Source of life, you give life to all:
– strengthen all parents in their task of bringing to harvest the goodness of those lives for which they are responsible. (R.)
Lord Jesus Christ, in this most wonderful sacrament, you left us a memorial of your Passion, Death, and Resurrection; grant us so to venerate the mysteries of your body and blood, that we may ever find in them the fruit of your redemption, who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
