Yes since Ash Wednesday 1980. Some thoughts re Mass
The Community and the Mass
Our God, grant that we always worthily offer the Eucharist when we meet together. As we celebrate in fellowship, please give us repentance for sins against charity towards You, towards others and towards ourselves. Enable us to acknowledge others’ offences against us and to invite Christ’s grace of forgiveness for them in our hearts.
Pardon our neglect of any social and community issues, as these failures constitute betrayal of Eucharistic love and fraternity, therefore of our Christian faith. Help us to serve our brothers and sisters in our communities, with vigour and respect. As Saint Paul said, “if you cannot love the brother (or sister) you can see, how can you claim to love the God whom you cannot see?”
To shape our Christian love, give us grace to attentively receive Your word in Scripture, in the dialogue of the Mass, in the homily, and in our hearts. Thus equipped, we carry Your Word and Your Spirit into our daily lives to share them with others in faith and charity, so that the Eucharist nourishes and supports community as it deepens each person’s spiritual life. Grant that our Masses and Communions are avenues of salvation and holiness for others.
Jesus, although we are often complacent regarding this gift of Your highest creative imagination, the Eucharist is Your heart-gift to humanity throughout time. You grant it for our spiritual nourishment and for our intimate communion with God, with Christians throughout the ages, and with all saints in Heaven.
You offer Yourself to God in reparation, thanksgiving, petition and praise on behalf of everyone who ever lives. I ask You, with the Holy Spirit, with the intercession of Your Mother, of all saints and angels, and of all souls, to offer the Mass for all persons in the highest way intended by God.
Thank You Jesus for this gift of Eucharist that is offered for everyone, even those who know nothing of this gift! The Eucharistic offering is never an isolated event or the prayer of any one person, but of all people. Therefore, in the Eucharist, I say ‘Amen’ to all Your hopes and dreams for everyone and everything that You intend in time and eternity.
The Mass is the only banquet to which one may invite countless souls from around the world throughout time. I invite the Angels of dear ones and of each other person living and in Purgatory, to share fully in the Eucharist as they proclaim ‘Amen’ to all the hopes and dreams that God has for each of these souls.
I wish my life to be a celebration of this heart-gift of Jesus who loves us each so much. For Jesus, Bread of Life, You are my pearl beyond price. I offer this pearl to the Father for each soul entrusted to me, and for all persons.
