Preface IV of Sundays in Ordinary Time: [The history of Salvation]

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
through Christ our Lord.

For by his birth he brought renewal
to humanity's fallen state,
and by his suffering, canceled out our sins;
by his rising from the dead
he has opened the way to eternal life,
and by ascending to you, O Father,
he has unlocked the gates of heaven.

And so, with the company of Angels and Saints,
we sing the hymn of your praise,
as without end we acclaim:

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts…

Communion Antiphon:

The rich suffer want and go hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no blessing. See Psalm 34:11 [Roman Missal]

— or —

When the Lord appears, we shall be like him,
for we shall see him as he is. I John 3:2 [Roman Missal]

Aufer a me opprobrium et contemptum, quia mandata tua exquisivi, Domine: nam et testimonia tua meditatio mea est. [Graduale Romanum, p.353]

Prayer after Communion:

We entreat your majesty most humbly, O Lord,

that, as you feed us with the nourishment
which comes from the most holy Body and Blood of our Son,
so you may make us sharers of his di-vine nature.

Who lives and reigns for ev-er and ev-er. A-men.

May the God of all consolation order your days in his peace
and grant you the gifts of his blessing.
Amen.

May he free you always from every distress
and confirm your hearts in his love.

So that on this life's journey
you may be effective in good works,
rich in the gifts of hope, faith and charity,
and may come happily to eternal life.
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.
