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
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
