Liturgical notes

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.

General Instruction of the Roman Missal, §89

Having completed our Sunday celebration of the Mass, we are blessed to take the fruits of the celebration into our world. Our God relies upon us to be ambassadors of his work in our world. It will be by our faith-filled service to our brothers and sisters that it will be possible for God to be present to our world.

‘Behold, I am with you always, even to the end of the age, says the Lord.’
