Prayers and Readings


September 2, 2012



God of might, giver of every good gift,

put into our hearts the love of your name,

so that, by deepening our sense of reverence,

you may nurture in us what is good

and, by your watchful care,

keep safe what you have nurtured.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.


Prayer over the Offerings

May this sacred offering, O Lord,

confer on us always the blessing of salvation,

that what it celebrates in mystery

it may accomplish in power.

Through Christ our Lord.


Prayer after Communion

Renewed by this bread from the heavenly table,

we beseech you, Lord,

that, being the food of charity,

it may confirm our hearts

and stir us to serve you in our neighbor.

Through Christ our Lord
