Novena Day 5: INTERIOR PARTICIPATION IN THE EUCHARIST


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.

“In Christ crucified and risen, we truly celebrate the one who has united all things in himself”. (cf. Eph 1:10) In order to participate in Holy Mass in a meaningful way, everything we do must be carried out in harmony with the interior disposition necessary to remain aware that we are taking part in nothing less than God’s saving action, mysteriously made present to us.

An increased sense of the mystery of God among us is expressed in concrete outward signs of reverence for the Eucharist.

Everyone should be able to experience and express the awareness that at each celebration of the Eucharist we stand before the infinite majesty of God, who comes to us in the humble form of bread and wine. There also needs to be a full, conscious and active participation by all those present.

This implies that the mind and heart are awake, alert and engaged during the Eucharistic celebration. It also means greater awareness of the mystery being celebrated and its relationship to daily life. I thank You, my Jesus, for giving Yourself to me in this Most Blessed Sacrament, and so enriching it with the treasures of Your love that You have no greater gift to give me.


(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.
