Day 185: Thanksgiving, Memorial, Presence (1356-1361)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father, we know that you love us. We know that you have given your own Son, so we can have life and have it to the full. We know what He has done for us in offering Himself in sacrifice to you-a sacrifice of love, a sacrifice of praise, a sacrifice of thanksgiving. We know that that sacrifice has changed the course of every one of our lives because that sacrifice, that sacrifice of your Son, made it possible for us to have access to you. Help us to participate in this sacrifice, the sacrifice of the Mass, with our whole heart. Help us to participate in the sacrifice of the Mass as if every time we approach the Mass, we approach as if it’s our first Mass, our last Mass, and our only Mass. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
