Thanks for all your generosity
This weekend in union with all those attending the National Eucharistic Congress at Knock we pray the
Eucharistic Congress Prayer
Lord Jesus, you were sent by the Father
to gather together those who are scattered.
You came among us, doing good and bringing healing,
announcing the word of salvation
and giving the Bread which lasts forever.
Be our companion on life’s pilgrim way.
May your Holy Spirit inflame our hearts,
enliven our hope and open our minds,
so that together with our sisters and brothers in faith
we may recognise you in the Scriptures
and in the breaking of bread.
May your Holy Spirit transform us into one body
and lead us to walk humbly on the earth,
in justice and love,
as witnesses of your resurrection.
In communion with Mary,
whom you gave to us as our Mother
at the foot of the cross, through you
may all praise, honour and blessing be to the Father
in the Holy Spirit and in the Church,
now and forever. Amen.
