Taste and See: Goodness for us

DSC08219 Southwark.jpg

Nourished by this sacred gift, O Lord,
we give you thanks and beseech your mercy,
that, by the pouring forth of your Spirit,
the grace of integrity may endure
in those your heavenly power has entered.
Through Christ our Lord.

32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Prayer after Communion

The Eucharist is sacrament of the Sacrifice which is love for God and love for us. It is given to us as nourishment for our communion with God, joining us with Jesus’ worship of his Father and his service of humankind.

It is offered as an enabler of our living what it is.

It is offered for the beginning of the rest of our lives, that we might journey to God, and reach out to our brothers and sisters.
