This very short novena, or nine-day prayer, can be prayed at any time, but it is most appropriate in the nine days before or after the Feast of Corpus Christi. Christ's Body and Blood in the Sacrament of Holy Communion are our true food as Christians, giving us the strength to live our lives in union with God.
Short Novena for Corpus Christi
O Lord Jesus Christ, You who have given us Your precious Body and Blood to be our meat and drink, grant that through frequent reception of You in the Holy Eucharist, I may be strengthened in mind and body to do Your holy will. Amen.
Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, have mercy on us.
