What is the Best Prayer after Receiving Holy Communion?

Millions of people for centuries have prayed this prayer just after receiving Communion. Amazing to think about that chorus of voices, isn’t it? Which petition speaks most to you right now?

PRAYER

Soul of Christ, sanctify me.
Body of Christ, save me.
Blood of Christ, inebriate me.

Water from the side of Christ, wash me.
Passion of Christ, strengthen me.
O good Jesus, hear me.
Within Thy wounds, hide me.
Separated from Thee let me never be.
From the malignant enemy, defend me.
At the hour of death, call me.
To come to Thee, bid me,
That I may praise Thee in the company
Of Thy Saints, for all eternity. Amen.

ALSE SEE:  Who are the 7 women mentioned during the Eucharistic prayer at Mass?

And here’s a simple prayer from Padre Pio which is also wonderful to say to Christ as his Eucharistic Presence is nestled in your heart:

My past, O Lord, I entrust to your mercy. My presence to your love. My future to your providence.
