Day 194: Summary of the Sacrament of the Eucharist (1406-1419)

Prayer by Fr. Mike: “Father in Heaven, we thank you. We thank you for the gift of your Son and the Eucharist. We thank you for all the gifts, all the sacraments you have given to us. All the sacraments of initiation, Baptism, and Confirmation, and Holy Communion. We ask you to please, on this last day of our reflection upon Holy Communion, the sacrament of sacraments, you open our hearts and open our minds so that the nuggets can stay with us. So that they’re not merely pieces of data or articles of information, but that they really truly are seeds that are planted in our hearts and our minds that continue to grow, that don’t leave us ever. But that we carry them with us, and they continue to bear fruit in our lives. Lord God, help this day not to be merely a day of information transfer, but a day truly of transformation. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen”
