Our Morning Offering – 9 December – The Second Sunday of Advent
Dear Lord, I Approach You
(Prayer before Holy Communion)
By Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471)
with simplicity of heart,
in good and stable faith
and at Your command,
I approach You,
full of confidence and adoration,
truly believing that You are present
in this Sacrament, God and Man.
It is Your will that I receive You
and bind myself to You in love.
Most merciful Lord,
I beg of You that special grace,
that my soul may melt and overflow
with Your love,
never concerning myself again
with any other comfort but Your own.
