Dear Lord, this bread that we have baked represents each one of us in this family and in our parish. We are offering ourselves to Thee, our very life, in humble obedience and total commitment. We place ourselves on Thy holy altar through this bread to be used by Thee in anyway that will enlarge Thy kingdom. Accept our gift and make us worthy to receive the greater gift that Thou will give to us when Thou consecrate this bread and give it back to us as Thy most precious body. Amen.
