I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this also I believe, –that unless I believed, I should not understand.-- St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

A Prayer for World Communion Sunday

Our Father who is in heaven, we believe you are in heaven and we believe you are present in this very room also at this time. We thank you that your Spirit and the Spirit of Christ are within us at all times. As we are gathered to eat this meal before you, we recognize the Presence of your Son in the bread we eat. You have glorified us in permitting us to share this bread which he calls his body and to share in his body. Father, you have made us one in you and in him. We praise you for that. Thank you for offering his body for our sins that we might be brought back into your favor. Thank you for this bread which renews our appreciation at this moment for the life which Jesus has given to us. He has paid for our guilt that we might be free from it. Thank you for your limitless love. Amen.
