Novena Day 4: THE EUCHARIST AND THE RISEN CHRIST


Let us begin: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

O Lord Jesus Christ, You who have given us Your precious Body and Blood to be our food and drink, grant that through frequent reception of You in the Holy Eucharist, I may be strengthened in mind and body to do Your holy will. Amen

As often as you eat the bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes. (1 Cor 11:26)

The Liturgy of the Eucharist is essentially the action of God which draws us up into Christ through the Holy Spirit. The basic structure of the Mass is not something which can be changed. Saint Paul in his letter to the Corinthians reminds us that when he speaks about the Eucharist, he is not presenting his own teaching, but rather, what he has received (1 Cor 3:11)

The celebration of the Eucharist involves the living Tradition of the Church and celebrates the Sacrifice of the Eucharist in obedience to the command that Jesus gave at the Last Supper. The Old Testament tradition saw the beginning of God’s work of creation as the first day of the week. The first day of the week has now become for us the day of the “new creation”, on which we commemorate the Resurrection of Jesus from the dead. I thank You, most loving Jesus, for having made Yourself my food, and for uniting me to Yourself with so much love in this wonderful Sacrament of your Body and Blood, so that I may live in You.


(Mention your petition here)

O Sacrament most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine. Pray one Our Father... one Hail Mary and one Glory Be.. for the intentions of our Holy Father, Pope Francis.

Let us pray: O Jesus, since You have left us a remembrance of Your Passion in the Sacrament of the Eucharist, grant us, we pray, so to venerate the sacred mysteries of Your Body and Blood that we may always enjoy the fruits of Your Redemption, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
