Deepening the Grace

The Eucharistic Revival Prayer of Archbishop Gomez

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the gift of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, who promised to stay with us always, until the end of the age.

Reawaken our wonder at His presence in the Most Holy Eucharist.
May our hearts burn within us as He opens the Scriptures and breaks the bread.

Give us the eyes of faith to recognize His presence in our brothers and sisters, especially in the face of the poor and the suffering.

Nourished by the Eucharist, send us forth to walk faithfully as missionary disciples, proclaiming the Gospel to every heart and extending Your kingdom to every land.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

His Excellency, Jose H. Gomez, is the Archbishop of Los Angeles and served as the President of the US Council of Catholic Bishops from 2021-2023. He presided over the launch of the Eucharistic Revival and wrote this prayer to accompany the massive national reawakening of love for Christ in the Eucharist.

The poetic language he uses in this prayer to petition our Heavenly Father truly opens our hearts to grace:

  • Reawaken our wonder…
  • May our hearts burn within us…
  • Give us the eyes of faith…
  • Send us forth to walk faithfully as missionary disciples…
  • Proclaiming the Gospel to every heart.

Spend time with this marvelous prayer and let it “proclaim the Gospel” to your heart too!
