O Sacred Banquet

St. Thomas Aquinas composed the prayer O Sacrum Convivium – Latin for O Sacred Banquet – for the Feast of Corpus Christi. It is traditionally prayed by Dominicans before the hours of the Divine Office, during adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and other community gatherings.

During this Year of the Eucharist, let us pray: O sacred banquet, in which Christ is received, the memory of His Passion is renewed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory to us is given. Alleluia.
