Collect of the Holy Eucharist
|Taken at St Stephen's Episcopal Church, Oxford NC|
God our Father, whose Son our Lord Jesus Christ in a wonderful Sacrament has left us a memorial of his passion: Grant us so to venerate the sacred mysteries of his Body and Blood, that we may ever perceive within ourselves the fruit of his redemption; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
(the BCP notes that this prayer is especially appropriate for Thursdays)
