This page provides resources for making a preparation and thanksgiving for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, as well as for Eucharistic Holy Hours. In this case, the ‘refreshers’ are simply suggestions – and as long as an effort to prepare and enter into the mystery is made, the manner of preparation is left up to the individual cultivating the Rose!
The Eucharist and Christian Perfection by St. Peter Juilan Eymard is free to download in a few different forms on the Internet Archive. It’s full of retreat conferences and reflections and well worth a read through.
30 Eucharistic Meditations of St. Jean Vianney. This is a PDF file, the meditations are further divided into numbered paragraphs so it’s helpful for finding quick thoughts that could invite you into prayer.
Discourses on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and on the Divine Office by St. Alphonsus Liguori, is also available free for download on the Internet Archive. It contains meditations and prayers both to prepare and make thanksgiving for Mass. The book is written primarily for priests, but contains a lot of food for thought for anyone who decides to pray with it.
More resources will be added as we go along – but in the meantime take a browse round the Library if you want some more ideas!
