Thanksgiving for the Eucharist

For our paschal lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed. Therefore let us celebrate the feast!

1 Corinthians 5:7-8

 O Christ the Savior, we give You thanks for Your redeeming sacrifice,  the only hope of men!

O Christ the Savior, we give You thanks for the eucharistic breaking of  bread, which You instituted in order to really meet Your brothers, in the course of the centuries!

Christ the Savior, put into the hearts of the baptized the desire to offer  themselves with You and to commit themselves for the salvation of their brothers!

You who are really present in the Blessed Sacrament, spread Your   blessings abundantly on Your people…Amen.
