God, who in this wonderful sacrament hast left us a memorial of Thy passion,
Grant us, we beseech Thee, so to venerate the sacred mysteries of Thy Body and Blood, that we may ever perceive within us the fruit of Thy redemption.
Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit. World without end.
