LMIGHTY and everliving God, we most heartily thank thee for
that thou hast vouchsafed to feed us in these holy Mysteries, with the spiritual food of the most precious body and blood of thy Son our Saviour Jesus Christ ; and hast assured us (duly receiving the same) of thy favour and goodness toward us; and that we be very members incorporate in thy Mystical body, which is the blessed company of all faithful people ; and heirs through hope, of thy everlasting kingdom, by the merits of the most precious death and passion of thy dear Son.
