Prayer of Saint Thomas Aquinas
Indulgence of Three Years
:gopray2: :signofcross:
I Thank You, O Holy Lord, Almighty Father Eternal God.
Who have deigned, not through any merits of mine,
But out of the condescension of Your goodness,
to satisfy me a sinner. Your worthy servant,
With the Precious Body and Blood of Your Son,
our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that this Holy Communion
be not a condemnation to punishment for me, but
a saving plea to forgiveness. may it be to me the armor of faith
and the shield of a good will. May it be the emptying out
of vices and the extinction of all lustful desires;
an increase of charity and patience, of humility and obedience,
and of all virtues; a strong defense against the snares of
all my enemies, visible and invisible; the perfect quieting
of all my evil impulses of flesh and spirit,
binding me firmly to You, the one true God;
and a happy ending of my life. i pray that
You will deign to bring me a sinner to that ineffable banquet,
wher You with Your Son and the Holy Spirit, are to Your
saints true light, fulfillment of desires, eternal joy,
unalloyed gladness, and perfect bliss.
Through the same christ our Lord
Amen.:signofcross:

God’s gift of redemption and Jesus’ heart-gift
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.

Jesus, thank You 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.
