Blogger Priest

As he did with the Collect, the celebrant introduces the Prayer After Communion. He says, “Let us pray.” Any silence and opportunity here for prayer is very brief. It may be enough to say “Thank you, Jesus” but not much more. The priest prays in the name of God’s people, the Church. He prays that the many fruits of the Mass just said will be efficacious. Who can say what miracles are made possible with each and every Mass. The sick are healed. The troubled are given peace of mind and soul. Sins are forgiven. Demons are exorcised. The weak are shielded from harm. We are nurtured and fed by the Eucharist so that we might have God’s life and holiness within us. We make all that has transpired our own by responding, “Amen.”
