Healing through the Eucharist

(Personal and Inter-generational healing)

 Sign of the Cross

We are gathering in the Presence of the

Holy Trinity.

 Penitential Rite:

The process of forgiveness begins with the

“I confess to almighty God…” Repentance

leads to forgiveness, the pathway to healing.

It is loving, letting go of hardness toward a

person; releasing things held against some-

one; releasing a person from my bondage.

At this point, therefore,

1) I ask the deceased family members to

forgive me, including the failure to pray

for them.

2) I forgive them for their sinfulness and

their negative effect against me. I can say,

“I forgive the damage of what my past

generation members did , and which it is

affecting me today.” 

3) I can now apologize to God for the sins

of my ancestors.

 

 The Gloria

In the Gloria I enter into the praise of Jesus

Who is before the Father. His prayer becomes

my prayer and my prayer becomes His. These

two prayers become one in the Body of Christ.

As I make this sacrifice of praise to the Lord

I will become more open to healing of body,

mind and spirit.

 

 Let Us Pray

As the priest prays, he collects the prayers

and needs of the congregation and present

them to the Lord. |At this time I present my

family tree to my loving Father for healing

and blessing.

 

Liturgy of the Word

Gospel: there is a healing power in the Word

of God. I need to listen and respond to what

He has to say. I must expect healing. That is

why the priest and the congregation invoke

God’s healing touch through the burning of

the Word in their minds, lips and hearts. I

must take an attitude to receive the Word

and allow It to change, energize and

heal me.

 

The Homily

It unfolds the message of the Gospel and I

should use this time to look at the goodness

of God.

 

The Creed

I tell the world that I believe in all that Jesus

has taught me and that I am His follower.

I become deeply united with Him through the

profession of my faith, therefore, opening

myself and my blood- lines to His healing

Presence.

 

 Prayer of the Faithful

I fulfill my role as a Christian to be an inter-

cessor for others and channels through which

God’s healing can flow.  I am agreeing not

only to pray, but to bear with and help carry

the burden of the other until it is removed.

The latter I can only do with the grace and

power of God and the support of the Body

of Christ (Congregation).

 

 Liturgy of the Eucharist

 

The Offertory

It is symbolic of the congregation coming

before the Lord not only with the gifts of

water and wine and tithes, but with a personal

re-dedication. I offer at this point my family

tree to Jesus in union with His life, death

and resurrection. I also become open to give

to Him all of my brokenness that is also a

reflection of the brokenness of my family

history. I should expect to receive God’s

unconditional love that they and I may have

needed and was not received.

The Consecration

As bread and wine are transformed into Jesus’

Body and Blood, there is a spiritual transform-

ation in the members of the Congregation.

1) I may close my eyes and see the white light

of the Father coming down and touching my

heart and soaking through my past generations,

like a river flowing out into all the family

tributaries and streams.

2) I see the waters of Baptism flowing over

my past generations touching and melting

hardened, unforgiving hearts.

3) I can imagine myself and family tree

being set free of all negative attachments

through the washing with the Blood of Jesus

and the nourishment of His Body and Blood.

4) I now see the mercy of God over myself

and I become united to the family of the

Holy Trinity, Our Lady and all Saints and

Angels because of Jesus’ Sacrifice.

Therefore, I will bless His Holy Name.

 

The Lord’s Prayer

This is a prayer of relationship in which I

enter into the recognition of His holiness; I

surrender; I ask for my needs to be met; I am

called to accountability, to forgive and to

experience deliverance. At this point of asking

to be delivered from evil, I can break with old

covenants with the devil through my ancestors

and make new covenants with Jesus. I can pray:

“I now break in the Name of Jesus Christ

all psychic heredity and any demonic hold

upon my family line as a result of the

disobedience of my ancestors.”

I also should cut at this time any bondage

between myself and any member of my family

tree, living or dead. I also must remember that

I say this prayer to the Lord in union with

millions of other members of the Body of Christ.

Communion

At this time I formally offer my family tree to

Jesus and all sins committed, especially those

never acknowledged, repented, amended, etc.

 

 The Concluding Rite

I must focus on my Father’s goodness who

blesses me through the priest to experience His

love, peace and healing received, and to go

forth to witness it. I must remember that God

has healed me beyond my expectations in order

to use me as an instrument of His healing Love.

 Prayer: Lord, please continue to unfold in

my heart an understanding of the great gift

of the Eucharist. Let the wonder of this great

gift rise up in my Spirit. Let a great faith

grow in me to know the healing power of

the Mass. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

 Healing the past sins of the

 American Catholic Church

   Through the Eucharist

 Sign of the Cross

We are gathering in the Presence of the

Holy Trinity.

Penitential Rite:

The process  of forgiveness begins  with the

“I confess  to almighty God…”   Repentance

leads to forgiveness, the pathway to healing.

It is  loving, letting go  of hardness toward a

person; releasing things held against some-

one;  releasing a person from my bondage.

At this point, therefore,

1) I ask all the deceased and alive members

baptized  in the  American  Catholic  Church

since its inception, to forgive me for anything

said against their deeds in the past, including

my failure to pray for them.

2) I forgive them for their sinfulness and their

negative effect against me. I can say,

“I forgive the damage from acts from any

and all members of the American Roman

Catholic Church, which may have affected

me negatively, in the past or to this day.” 

3) I can now apologize to God for all the sins

of  the  members  of  the  American  Roman

Catholic Church.

The Gloria

In the  Gloria I enter into  the praise of Jesus

Who is before the Father. His prayer becomes

my prayer and my prayer becomes His. These

two prayers become one in the Body of Christ.

As  I make this  sacrifice of praise  to the Lord

I  will  offer the  members  of  the  American

Roman Catholic Church  to be  more open to

healing of body, mind and spirit.

Let Us Pray

As the priest prays, he  collects the prayers

and needs of the congregation and presents

them  to  the Lord.  At this time  I  present  my

USA  Church family  to  my loving  Father  for

healing and blessing.

 

Liturgy of the Word

Gospel: there is a healing power in the Word

of God. I  need to  listen and respond to what

He has to say. I must expect healing. That is

why the  priest and  the congregation  invoke

God’s healing  touch through  the burning of

the  Word  in  their  minds, lips  and hearts. I

must take an attitude  to receive the Word

and  allow  It  to  change,  nourish  and

energize  me  and  all  members  of  the

Catholic Church.

The Homily

It unfolds  the  message of the Gospel and I

should use this time to look at the goodness

of   God  in   leaving  us  His  Church,   and

especially by seeing how she has kept alive

His Word and  His Sacraments in  order to

nourish  me.  I  must  thank   God  for  this

spiritual mother, the Church.

The Creed

I tell the  world that I  believe in all that Jesus

has taught me  and that I am  His  follower. I

become  deeply united  with Him through the

profession  of my  faith,  therefore,  opening

myself  and  all  spiritual  blood  lines  in  the

Church to His healing Presence.

 

Prayer of the Faithful

I fulfill  my role as  a Christian  to be an inter-

cessor  for  others  and  channels  through

which  God’s  healing  can flow.  Therefore,

I  am  agreeing  not  only  to pray  for  the

Roman Catholic  Church, but  to bear with

and help carry her burdens and sins until

they  are  removed. The latter I can only do

with the grace and power of God and the

support of the Body of Christ /Congregation.

 Liturgy of the Eucharist

The Offertory

It is symbolic of the congregation coming

before the Lord not only with the gifts of

water and wine and tithes, but with a

1) Personal rededication.

2) I offer at this point the full membership

of the American Roman Catholic Church

to Jesus in union with His life, death

and resurrection.

3) I also become ready to give to Him the

American Catholic Church’s brokenness

that is also a reflection of the brokenness of

the universal Church.

4) I expect to receive God’s unconditional

love for all members, dead and alive, the

love they may have needed and never

received from others, which may have

contributed to their sins.

The Consecration

As bread and wine are transformed into

Jesus’ Body and Blood, there is a spiritual

transformation in the members of the

Congregation. I may close my eyes and

1) I see the white light of the Father coming

down and touching the hearts and soaking

with His love present and past generations of

the American Roman Catholic Church, like a

river flowing out into all the family tributaries

and streams.

2) I see the waters of Baptism flowing over

all past and present generations touching and

melting unforgiving hardened hearts.

3) I can imagine the Church’s family set

free of all negative attachments through

the washing with the Blood of Jesus and

the nourishment with His Body and Blood.

4) I now see the Mercy of God within the

womb of the US Church covering all her

members as a family to the Holy Trinity,

Our Lady and all Saints and Angels, this

Mercy coming from today’s Jesus’

Sacrifice. I will bless His Holy Name.

The Lord’s Prayer

This is a prayer  of relationship  in  which we,

as a Church enter into the recognition of His

holiness. We surrender, we ask for our needs

to  be  met;  we are  called to  accountability,

to  forgive  and  to  experience  deliverance.

At this point  of asking  to be  delivered from

evil, on   behalf of  the   Church I  will  break

with  old covenants  with  the Devil made by

members of the Body in past generations. I

can pray:   “I now  break  in  the  Name of

Jesus Christ all psychic heredity and any

demonic hold upon any and all members

of the American Roman Catholic Church

as the result of the disobedience of  her

members.”

I must  also remember  that I say this prayer

To  the Lord  in union  with  millions  of  other

Members  of  the  Body  of  Christ  for  any

particular day.

 

Communion

At  this  time  I formally  offer my American

Roman Catholic  family to  Jesus  and  all

sins  committed,  especially  those  never

acknowledged, repented, amended, etc.

The Concluding Rite

I must focus on my Father’s goodness who

blesses me through the priest to experience

His love, peace and healing received, and to

go forth  to  witness it.  I must  remember that

God has healed me beyond my expectations

in order  to use  me  as  an  instrument of His

healing  Love for the entire Body of Christ.

Prayer:  Lord, please  continue  to unfold in

my heart  and in the hearts  of all  members

of the  American  Roman  Catholic  Church,

an  understanding  of  the  great  gift  of  the

Eucharist.  Let the  wonder  of this great gift

rise up  in our spirits. Let  a great  faith grow

in us to know the healing power of the Mass.

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
