Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Music during Communion The Anima Christi Adap. from St. Ignatius
Composed by Martin Reardon
Body of Christ, sanctify me Within Thy wounds, hide me
Blood of Christ, cleanse me From the enemy, defend me
O, Jesus Christ, save me In my hour of death, call me
Come save us oh God! That I may come to you
That I may be with you
Body of Christ, sanctify me That I may worship you for eternity
Blood of Christ, cleanse me
O, Jesus Christ, save me, Have mercy oh God!
Prayer after Receiving
Eternal God, we give you thanks for this holy mystery
in which you have given yourself to us.
Grant that we may go into the world
in the strength of your Spirit,
to give ourselves for others,
in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
