The Consecration
(The Lord's Supper)

Setting and Music by Dan Rutledge

Eucharistic Prayer For Mass Of Reconciliation 1

Hear 'The Lord's Supper'

All CONCELEBRANTS

He takes the bread and, raising it a little above the altar, continues:

While they were at supper he took bread and gave you thanks and praise.
He broke the bread, gave it to his disciples, and said:

He bows slightly.

Take this, all of you, and eat it:
This is my body which will be given up for you.

He shows the consecrated host to the people,
places it on the paten, and genuflects in adoration.
Then he continues:

At the end of the meal,
knowing that he was to reconcile all things in himself
by the blood of his cross,

He takes the chalice and,
raising it a little above the altar, continues:

he took the cup, filled with wine.
Again he gave you thanks,
handed the cup to his friends, and said:

He bows slightly.

Take this, all of you, and drink from it:
This is the cup of my blood,
The blood of the new and everlasting covenant.
It will be shed for you and for all
So that sins may be forgiven.
Do this in memory of me.

He shows the chalice to the people,
places it on the corporal,
and genuflects in adoration.
