We praise and thank you, Lord Jesus, for giving your redeemed people you own body, broken for us, as food, and your own blood, poured out for us, as drink.
Through your saving blood, free us from sin and reconcile us in love. Break down every wall of division that separates us from one another and from you. May we be reunited in your body the Church, born from your pierced heart on the cross.
When we partake of your precious blood, communicate to us your Holy Spirit so that we may be empowered to love others as you have loved us. May our communion in your body and blood be a source of renewal for your Church; may it fill us with holy joy and bring us to eternal life. Amen.
