Prayer after Communion
During the ‘Liturgy of the Eucharist’ in Mass, we remember what Jesus did and said at the Last Supper.
This part is when the gifts (the bread and wine) are bought to the altar.
This part is also called the “offertory procession”
In this part, we give thanks to Jesus and the bread and wine become and body and blood of Jesus Christ though the works of the Holy Spirit.
This part is when we say the ‘Our Father’. This is the prayer that Jesus taught us in the bible so it helps us to give thanks and praise to him.
Our Father, Who art in heaven,Hallowed be Thy Name.Thy Kingdom come.Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.And forgive us our trespasses,as we forgive those who trespass against us.And lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from evil.
In this part, we share the greeting of Peace that we have been given in mass to our neighbours (the people around us).
Remember what we learnt about greetings at the start of this unit: the sign of peace is a type of greeting!
This part is when the people receive the great gifts that Jesus left us.
When the priest says: ‘Body of Christ’
The people reply: ‘Amen’ – This means that we believe that it is the body of the Christ.
The people may choose if they want to receive the wine (blood of Christ) after that.
For the Blood – The priest says: ‘Blood of Christ’
The people reply: ‘Amen’
When everyone has received the Eucharist, the priest then says a prayer to bless the congregation.
Prayer after communion:
PRIEST: Let us pray.God of salvation,may this sacrament,
which strengthens us here on earth bring us to eternal life.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord.
