Cel: God our Father, we thank you for the gift of your Son Jesus who instituted the Holy Eucharist on the night before he suffered in the presence of his apostles. The Eucharist nourishes us to carry on with our lives here on earth.
 
Give us the grace that we may worthily participate in the Eucharist where the Lord lets us eat his body and drink his blood. We make this prayer …
PRAYER OVER THE OFFERINGS
Grant your Church, O Lord, we pray, the gifts of unity and peace, whose signs are to be seen in mystery in the offerings we here present. Through Christ our Lord.
PREFACE (Body and Blood)
It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation, always and everywhere to give you thanks, Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God, through Christ our Lord.
For at the Last Supper with his Apostles, establishing for the ages to come the saving memorial of the Cross, he offered himself to you as the unblemished Lamb, the acceptable gift of perfect praise. Nourishing your faithful by this sacred mystery, you make them holy, so that the human race, bounded by one world, may be enlightened by one faith and united by one bond of charity.
And so, we approach the table of this wondrous Sacrament, so that, bathed in the sweetness of your grace, we may pass over to the heavenly realities here foreshadowed.
Therefore, all creatures of heaven and earth sing a new song in adoration, and we, with all the host of Angels, cry out, and without end we acclaim:
All: Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…
