For you the sun of righteousness will shine out.
R. The Lord comes to rule the earth with justice.
2 Thessalonians 3:7–12
Do not let anyone have food if he refuses to work.
Lift up your heads and see; your redemption is near at hand.

To bring to completion the prayer of the People of God, and also to conclude the entire Communion Rite, the priest sings or says the Prayer after Communion, in which he prays for the fruits of the mystery just celebrated.
In the Mass only one Prayer after Communion is said … The people make the prayer their own by the acclamation: Amen.—General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §89
The celebration of the Eucharist is an action of Christ and the Church. The Church is formed by the people of God under the leadership of the ordained; neither acts alone but always in unity. The presiding celebrant serves the prayer of the people of God by his many tasks during the celebration. The people of God voice their participation in the action by their acclamations.
