Thanksgiving after Holy Communion (Prayer of St. Thomas Aquinas)

I thank You, O holy Lord, almighty Father, eternal
God, who have deigned, not
through any merits of mine, but out of the condescension of Your goodness, to
satisfy me a sinner, Your unworthy servant, with the precious Body and Blood of
Your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. I pray that this Holy Communion be not a
condemnation to punishment for me, but a saving plea to forgiveness. May it be to
me the armor of faith and the shield of a good will. May it be the emptying out of
my vices and the extinction of all lustful desires;
and increase of charity and patience, of humility and obedience, and all virtues; a strong defense against the
snares of all my enemies, visible and invisible; the perfect quieting of all my evil
impulses of flesh and spirit, binding me firmly to
You, the one true God; and a happy ending of my life. I pray too that You will deign to bring me, a sinner, to
that ineffable banquet where You with Your Son and
the Holy Spirit, are to your Saints true light, fulfillment of desires, eternal joy, unalloyed gladness, and perfect bliss. Through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Lord Jesus, even as I receive your body and blood I confess that I am a sinner.I pray almighty father, that may your body and blood cleanse me of all my iniquities and wash away all my sins.I pray that may you grant me the grace to live a life of faithfulness to you and to my catholic faith, to remain humble and have in me the love and compassion for all.I ask this through Christ our Lord and Saviour from whom all great things come. Amen.
