(4.3) The Eucharistic Prayer

The Eucharistic Prayer is in the heart of our Celebration in the Mass.


There are usually four Eucharistic prayers that priests may choose from and they all have the same elements: "the thanksgiving (as especially expressed in the Preface), followed by  the acclamation, then epiclesis, the Institution narrative and Consecration, the anamnesis, oblation, the intercessions and the concluding doxology" (GIRM).
