Within a sermily (sermon/homily) series on the Eucharist at Prince of Peace Catholic Church, Father Chris Smith reminded parishioners of the importance of prayer as a way to prepare ourselves to receive our Lord Jesus Christ in the Eucharist at Mass along with a prayer of thanksgiving following Holy Communion (listen here). Preparatory praying can give us the proper frame of mind for our own special time with Him. Below is a suggested prayer by Venerable Fulton Sheen. A suggested prayer of thanksgiving after Holy Communion follows! 20150823_111008 untitled
