The administration of Holy Communion during the Mass is truly a ministry. It is the ministry of bringing the sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ to the People of God. It is also the ministry of witnessing to faith in the real presence of Christ in the action of sharing in the Eucharistic meal of Christ’s sacrifice. The ministry of the Eucharist should, therefore, be treated with utmost dignity and reverence.
Blessed are you, God of all creation!
With reverence and humility
I approach the Eucharist and this ministry.
I thank you for calling me to serve your holy people.
May I see you in them. May they see you in me.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen
