Title: Prayer for when I must miss Mass
Post by: RachelKH on December 26, 2010, 04:56:44 PM
My Susy is very sick and slept all Christmas Eve day and could not come to Mass with us, so I shared this prayer with her, so she didn't feel so bereft.

Go, my Angel Guardian dear,
To Church for me, the Mass to hear.
Go, kneel devoutly in my place
And treasure for me every grace.
At the Offertory time
Please offer me to God Divine.
All I have and all I am,
Present it with the Precious Lamb.
Adore for me the great Oblation.
Pray for all I hold most dear
Be they far or be they near.
Remember too, my own dear dead
For whom Christ's Precious Blood was shed.
And at Communion bring to me
Christ's Flesh and Blood, my food to be.
To give me strength and holy grace
A pledge to see Him face to face
And when the Holy Mass is done
Then with His blessing, come back home.

That's a beautiful prayer, Rachel! Even fitting for sometimes when I'm present (physically) at Mass, but not really "present".
