God our Father,
we bless you and give you thanks
for your Son Jesus
the gift of your love for the life of the world.

Watch over your Church
as it celebrates in joy and hope
the 49th International Eucharistic Congress.

Renew our faith in the Holy Eucharist,
the memorial of your Son’s death and resurrection.

May your Holy Spirit shed light upon us
and grant us strength
to serve as faithful witnesses to the Gospel.

Nourish us with your Word and your Bread of Life
so that united with Mary, 
Mother of your Divine Son and Mother of the Church,
We will bear much fruit for the salvation of the world.

We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Imprimatur: Cardinal Marc Ouellet, Archbishop of Québec, June 19, 2022
Nihil obstat: Jean Pelletier, P.H., Chancellor, June 20, 2022
