Go before us with heavenly light, O Lord,
always and everywhere,
that we may perceive with clear sight
and revere with true affection
the mystery in which you have willed us to participate.
Through Christ our Lord.
Prayer after Communion
The Prayer after Communion on Sunday, the feast of the Epiphany reminded us tht although we face challange and change, we do not -and are not intended to face it alone. The Lord God leads us and accompanies us as we journey forward – and in our detours to keep us safe!
It is his gift, his joy. But, as always, we need to be ready to receive the gift, to remember it so as to make the most of it.
And so the Church prays.
- Why is the Lord’s love and protection important to you?
- How do you best make use of it?
- How do you show your thankfulness for it?
