Thanksgiving for Holy Communion

It is indeed a tremendous miracle to see God taking flesh and becoming man, and a greater miracle still to see him suspended on the cross. But the highest of all miracles, O Christ our God, is your ineffable presence under the mystic species. Truly you did institute, through this Great Sacrament, a remembrance of all your marvels. How merciful of you, O God, to give yourself as food to those who revere you, to recall your covenant forever, and to remember your passion and your death until the day of your glorious coming! Let us, O faithful, receive our food and our life, our King and our Saviour, and cry out: 'Save, O Lord, those who worship your glorious and venerable presence'.

Greek prayer
