Vir erat in terra nomine Iob, simplex et rectus, ac timens Deum: quem Satan petiit, ut tentaret: et data est ei potestas a Domino in facultate et in carne eius: perdiditque omnem substantiam ipsius, et filios: carnem quoque eius gravi ulcere vulneravit. [Graduale Romanum, p.349]

receive these gifts
which our Lord Jesus Christ

Preface for Sundays in Ordinary Time II: [The mystery of salvation]
Father, all-powerful and ever-living God,
we do well always and everywhere to give you thanks
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Out of love for sinful man,
he humbled himself to be born of the Virgin.

By suffering on the cross
he freed us from unending death,
and by rising from the dead
he gave us eternal life.

And so, with all the choirs of angels in heaven
we proclaim your glory
and join in their unending hymn of praise:

  Holy, holy, holy Lord...

Communion Antiphon:
The Lord is good to those who hope in him, to those who are searching for his love.  Lamentations 3:25
    -- or --
Because there is one bread, we, though many, are one body, for we all share in the one loaf and in the one cup.  See I Cor 10:17
[Roman Missal (Sacramentary)]

In salutari tuo anima mea, et in verbum tuum speravi: quando facies de persequentibus me iudicium? iniqui persecuti sunt me, adiuva me, Domine Deus meus.  Psalm 119:81,84,86 [Graduale Romanum, p.350]

Almighty God
let the eucharist we share
fill us with your life.
May the love of Christ
which we celebrate here
touch our lives and lead us to you.
We ask this in the name of Jesus the Lord. Amen.
