Day 181: The Sacrament of the Eucharist (1328-1332)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, thank you Father. You have revealed your name to us. You have revealed the name of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord to us, and you have revealed the different ways in which we are called to consider the Eucharist. Lord God, when we begin to think that we know you, it is pretty clear that we only know something of you. Help us to know your heart in the depths, help us to know your heart, as well as we know anyone’s heart. Help us to know you even better than we know anyone. As you continue to reveal yourself to us in your sacraments and your Scripture, here in the Eucharist, we ask that you please deepen our love for you, not just our knowledge. Broaden our love for you, not just what we know. And help us to allow you and your grace to transform our lives into living reflections of you, so that we can be walking Tabernacles, so that we can be walking witnesses. Apostles sent forth because you have made us your children in Baptism. You have strengthened us with Confirmation. And you feed us, and you make us into yourself in this unique and mysterious way in the Holy Eucharist. Lod God, may you be praised and glorified. Hear our prayer, now and forever. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
