Preface VIII of Sundays in Ordinary Time: [The Church united by the unity of the Trinity]

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.

For, when your children were scattered afar by sin,
through the Blood of your Son and the power of the Spirit,
you gathered them again to yourself,
that a people, formed as one by the unity of the Trinity,
made the body of Christ and the temple of the Holy Spirit,
might, to the praise of your manifold wisdom,
be manifest as the Church.

And so, in company with the choirs of Angels,
we praise you, and with joy we proclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…

Communion Antiphon:

How precious is your mercy, O God!
The children of men seek shelter in the shadow of your wings. Psalm 36:8 [Roman Missal]

— or —

The chalice of blessing that we bless
is a communion in the Blood of Christ;
and the bread that we break
is a sharing in the Body of Christ. I Cor 10:16 [Roman Missal]

Verses of Psalm 34 can also be sung between repetitions of this antiphon.

Choose one Antiphona ad communionem and Psalmus from any of the eight Masses for Ordinary Time [Graduale simplex, pp.215-252]

Prayer after Communion:

May the working of this heavenly gift, O Lord, we pray,
take possession of our minds and bod- ies,

so that its effects, and not our own desires,
may always pre- vail in us.

Through Christ our Lord. A-men.

Solemn Blessing: [14. Ordinary Time VI]

May God bless you with every heavenly blessing,
make you always holy and pure in his sight,
pour out in abundance upon you the riches of his glory,
and teach you with the words of truth;
may he instruct you in the Gospel of salvation,
and ever endow you with fraternal charity.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

And may the blessing of almighty God,
the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit,
come down on you and remain with you for ever.
Amen.
