Father Dustin Bain, associate pastor at St. Monica Church in Indianapolis, carries Our Lord in a Eucharistic procession. Picture by Karen Callaway. For the devout Catholic, nothing we do is more intimate or more adoring than receiving the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of Christ, in holy Communion
Soul of Christ, sanctify me. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, inebriate me. Water from the side of Christ, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me. O good Jesus, hear me. Within Thy wounds hide me. Suffer me not to be separated from Thee. From the malignant enemy, defend me. In the hour of my death, call me. And bid me come to Thee. That with Thy saints I may praise Thee.
