Prayer after Mass

Prayer After Mass

   I came across this prayer today and thought I would share it. I definitely will be keeping this prayer on my phone so when I leave mass I can say it.  It will help extend that blessing and grace from mass just a bit longer as we all go back out into the world where we face all those things and people that pull us away from our Spiritual self and tries to conform us to the world.

Until tomorrow, God Bless, and may you find those blessings from the Mass and go out into the world filled with the Spirit. 

Prayer After Mass

LORD, Father all-powerful, and ever-living God, I thank Thee, for even though I am a sinner, Thy unprofitable servant, not because of my worth, but in the kindness of Thy mercy, Thou hast fed me with the precious Body and Blood of Thy Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. 
I pray that this holy communion may not bring me condemnation and punishment but forgiveness and salvation. 
May it be a helmet of faith and a shield of good will. 
May it purify me from evil ways and put an end to my evil passions. 
May it bring me charity and patience, humility and obedience, and growth in power to do good. 
May it be my strong defense against all my enemies, visible and invisible, and the perfect calming of all my evil impulses, bodily and spiritual. 
May it unite me more closely to Thee, the one true God and lead me safely through death to everlasting happiness with Thee. 
And I pray that Thou willest lead me, a sinner to the banquet where Thou with Thy Son and Holy Spirit, are true and perfect light, total fulfillment, everlasting joy, gladness without end, and perfect happiness to Thy saints.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.
