Preface VIII of the 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:

I will sing to the Lord who has been bountiful with me,
sing psalms to the name sof the Lord Most High. Psalm 13:6

Behold, I am with you always,
even to the end of the age, says the Lord.Mt 28:20 [Roman Missal]

Prayer after Communion:

Nour-ished by your saving gifts
we beseech your mercy, Lord,

that by this same Sacrament
with which you feed us in the present age,

you may make us partakers of life e-ternal.

Through Christ our Lord. A-men.
