Prayer for participation in the Holy Eucharist


Mary, Mother of the Word, obtain for me by your holy prayers the grace of participation in the Holy Eucharist, especially the grace and worthiness to commune with Jesus Christ as often as I participate in His Sacrament, and may I by your same prayers be found in the state of grace and worthy of eternal communion with the same Christ at hour of my death. I entrust myself, a poor and wretched sinner, to your care.


Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee
Blessed are thou among women
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners
Now and at the hour of our death


Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning, and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, your eyes of mercy toward us; and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary! Amen.
