The Eucharist

Our Father
When it was evening, Jesus and the twelve disciples sat down to eat. During the meal Jesus said, "I tell you, one of you will betray me." (Matthew 26,20-21) - Hail Mary

The disciples were very upset and began to ask him, one after the other, "Surely, Lord, you don't mean me?" (Matthew 26,22) - Hail Mary

Judas, the traitor, spoke up. "Surely, Teacher, you don't mean me?" he asked. Jesus answered, "So you say." (Matthew 26,25) - Hail Mary

While they were eating, Jesus took a piece of bread, gave a prayer of thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples. "Take and eat it," he said, "this is my body." (Matthew 26,26) - Hail Mary

Then he took a cup, gave thanks to God, and gave it to them. "Drink it, all of you," he said; "this is my blood, which seals God's covenant, my blood poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins." (Matthew 26,27) - Hail Mary

"I am the bread of life," Jesus told them. "Those who come to me will never be hungry; those who believe in me will never be thirsty." (John 6, 35) - Hail Mary

"Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them to life on the last day." (John 6,54) - Hail Mary

"There are many rooms in my Father's house, and I am going to prepare a place for you. I will come back and take you to myself, so that you will be where I am." (John 14,3) - Hail Mary

"Peace is what I leave with you; it is my own peace that I give you. Do not be worried and upset; do not be afraid." (John 14,27) - Hail Mary

"My commandment is this: love one another, just as I love you. The greatest love you can have for your friends is to give your life for them." (John 15,12-13) - Hail Mary

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
