Prayer For After Communion
Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, fill me.
Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Hide me within your wounds.
Do not allow me to be separated from you.
From the malicious enemy defend me
. In the hour of death call me
and bid me come to you that
I may praise you for ever and ever.
O Jesus, help me to do what you want me to do.
Help me to do my work better,
help me to be kind and thoughtful at home,
and friendly to all my neighbours.
O Jesus, I love you.
Make me love you even more.
I believe that you have come to me
in Holy Communion
because you have said it and your word is true.
O my God,
I am sorry for all my sins
because they offend you who are so good.
With your help I will not sin again.
because you said it,
I believe that I shall receive the Body of Jesus to eat,
and the Blood of Jesus to drink.
I believe this with all my heart.
O my God, help me to make a good Communion.
Mary, my mother, pray to Jesus for me.
All you holy Angels and saints, pray for me.
My dear Angel Guardian, lead me to the altar of God.
I thank You, O holy Lord, almighty Father, eternal God, who have deigned, not through any merits of mine, but out of the condescension of Your goodness, to satisfy me a sinner, Your unworthy servant, with the precious Body and Blood of Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that this Holy Communion be not a condemnation to punishment for me, but a saving plea to forgiveness. May it be to me the armor of faith and the shield of a good will. May it be the emptying out of my vices and the extinction of all lustful desires; and increase of charity and patience, of humility and obedience, and all virtues; a strong defense against the snares of all my enemies, visible and invisible; the perfect quieting of all my evil impulses of flesh and spirit, binding me firmly to You, the one true God; and a happy ending of my life. I pray too that You will deign to bring me, a sinner, to that ineffable banquet where You with Your Son and the Holy Spirit, are to your Saints true light, fulfillment of desires, eternal joy, unalloyed gladness, and perfect bliss. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen
