Father in Heaven, ever-living source of all that is good, keep me faithful in serving You. Help .
Me to drink of Christ's Truth, and fill my heart with His Love so that I may serve You in faith 
And love and reach eternal life. In the Sacrament of the Eucharist You give me the joy of sharing 
Your Life. Keep me in Your presence. Let me never be separated from You and help me to do Your Will. Amen.
