EUCHARISTIC RITE

Priest:  Lord, You are holy indeed, the fountain of all holiness.  Let your spirit come upon these gifts to make them holy, so that they may become for us the Body and + Blood of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Before He has given up to death, a death He freely accepted, He took bread and gave you thanks.  He broke the bread, gave it to His disciples and said; ''Take this all of you and eat it, this is my Body which will be given up for you.

(Silent Prayer: My and and my God)

When supper was ended, he took the cup.  Again he gave you thanks and praise, and gave the cup to his disciples and said; ''Take this, all of you and drink form it, this is the cup of my blood, the blood of the new and everlasting covenant.  It will be shed for you and for all men so that sins may be forgiven.  Do this in memory of Me.

(Silent Prayer: My and and my God)
