THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS PRAYER - Communion with Christ and with One Another

Mit-Testment il-Qadim - il-profeta Mikea:-
[Mik 6:8] Bniedem, huwa wriek x'inhu tajjeb u x'jistenna minnek il-Mulej: li tagħmel dak li hu ġust, li tħobb u tkun ħanin, u li tkun umli fl-imġiba tiegħek ma' Alla tiegħek."

Eucharistic Congress Prayer

Archbishop Martin has approved the Eucharistic Congress Prayer. We invite you to support the Congress by praying this prayer with us, on a daily basis if possible. The prayer draws its inspiration from the Gospel story of the two disciples on the road to Emmaus (Lk. 24) and from the words of the prophet Micah where we read:
“This and only this is what the Lord God asks of you: to act justly, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8).
The Congress office will shortly arrange for the prayer to be printed and made available to those who wish to have it.
Lord Jesus,
You were sent by the Father
to gather together those who are scattered.
You came among us, doing good and bringing healing,
announcing the Word of salvation
and giving the Bread which lasts forever.
Be our companion on life’s pilgrim way.
May your Holy Spirit inflame our hearts,
enliven our hope and open our minds,
so that together with our sisters and brothers in faith
we may recognise you in the Scriptures and in the
breaking of bread.
May your Holy Spirit transform us into one body
and lead us to walk humbly on the earth,
in justice and love,
as witnesses of your resurrection.
In communion with Mary,
whom you gave to us as our Mother at the foot of the
cross, through you
may all praise, honour and blessing be to the Father
in the Holy Spirit and in the Church,
Now and forever.
