How many times with your own hand have you held out to me your Body and your Blood, and I, though a miserable sinner, have received this Sacrament, and have tasted your love, so ineffable, so heavenly. Glory to you, O God, from age to age!
Lord, give rest to the souls of your departed servants, in a place of brightness, refreshment, and repose; where all suffering, sorrow, and sighing have fled away.
Remember, my God, the fall of Lucifer, full of pride; keep me safe with the power of your grace. Save me from falling away from you; save me from doubt. Incline my heart to call upon you, present in everything. Glory to You, O God, from age to age!
