Liturgical notes

In the Lord’s Prayer a petition is made for daily food, which for Christians means preeminently the Eucharistic Bread, and also for purification from sin, so that what is holy may, in fact, be given to those who are holy.

General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §81 

The inclusion of the Lord’s Prayer in the Mass came very early. Including this prayer at the time of Communion draws us in two ways. First, we, the holy people of God, petition the Holy One to give us a share in that holiness: ‘Give us today our daily bread.’ This petition then links the Eucharist with our petition for forgiveness: ‘Forgive us as we forgive.’ The generous gift of God is an invitation to do the same and forgive those who ‘have trespassed against us’. So we move from this prayer to the sign of peace. 

‘Accept, O Lord, we pray, the offerings which we bring from the abundance of your gifts, that through the powerful working of your grace these most sacred mysteries may sanctify our present way of life and lead us to eternal gladness.’ 

—prayer over the offerings
