Following the Lamb...

The Lamb who is at the center of the throne
will lead them to the springs of the waters of life. - Rev 7:17
Prayer After Communion (Today's Liturgy)
O God, who bestowed on blessed Catherine of Alexandria
a crown among the Saints
for her twofold triumph of virginity and martyrdom,
grant, we pray, through the power of this Sacrament,
that, bravely overcoming evil,
we may attain the glory of heaven.
Through Christ our Lord.
