I know that You give me many gifts.
The gift of Your Son, Jesus Christ in Holy Communion is the greatest of all.
How can I ever thank You enough for this special gift?
At Mass we are called to be like Jesus, by loving and serving one another in the world.
As I become more like Him, please continue to help me.
Show me the places and ways that I can bring Your love, kindness, and peace
to others.… in my family, in my neighborhood, in my community, with my friends.
I ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
