Faithful Citizenship Novena: Day 5

FIFTH DAY

AUDIO

OPENING PRAYER

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful

and kindle in us the fire of your love.

READING

1 Cor 11:26-29

For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until he comes.

Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily will have to answer for the body and blood of the Lord. A person should examine himself, and so eat the bread and drink the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without discerning the body, eats and drinks judgment on himself.

REFLECTION

How is the Eucharist central in my life? My community?

Where do I reach out to the body of Christ in my community?

PRAYER

Lord,

we come together at the Eucharist to celebrate

your death and resurrection.

Help us experience authentic worship.

Help us grow in awareness of each person’s dignity,

and increase our sensitivity to injustices.

Guide us to seek ways to redress them.

Amen.

NOVENA PRAYER
