Prayer Before Mass:  Heavenly Father, Your word is creative sustaining all that You have made. In the words of Holy Scripture, You speak life-giving words to us.  Lord Jesus, You gathered the disciples at table, giving us sacred bread and wine.  Through the Holy Eucharist, You nourish Your body, the Church.  Holy Spirit, You came to dwell within us, providing oneness though we are many.  In the gifts given to each, You complete what we begin in faith.  Amen.

Act of Spiritual Communion:  My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.  Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You as if you were already there, and I unite myself wholly to You.  Never permit me to be separated from You. (Saint Alphonsus Liguori)
