Before Mass

O holy Jesu,
when at thy Altar I see the Bread broken
and the Wine poured out,
O teach me to discern thy Body there.
O let those sacred and significant actions create in me
a most lively remembrance of thy sufferings,
how thy most blessed Body was scourged and wounded
and bruised and tormented,
how thy most precious Blood was shed for my sins;
and set all my powers on work to love thee
and to celebrate thy love in thus dying for me. Amen.

Bishop Thomas Ken (1637-1711)
