The Eucharistic Day is a day lived by members of the Eucharistic Youth Movement (EYM) in which Jesus is the Sun, the center of the day. Beside the main "Three Moments of the Day", the hours of the Eucharistic Day are marked with prayer, spiritual communion, sacrifice, apostolic works, rosary, etc.

ULTIMATE GOAL: Everyone is called to be holy. As such, a Eucharistic youth's ultimate goal is holiness and sainthood. To be holy is:

  • To be set apart - In the world but not belonging to the world.
  • To be a Christian - Have Christ, belong to Christ, become like Christ.
  • To be consecrated - Offer our life to do the will of God.

SPIRITUALITY: TThe EYM’s spirituality is Living the Eucharistic Day, allowing one to live in close union with God, especially with Jesus in the Eucharist, the Center of one’s life. Living the Eucharistic Day is important to the EYM's members as a means to grow in holiness each day.

LIVING the EUCHARISTIC DAY: There are three main parts of the Eucharistic Day, often called "Three Moments of the Day":

1. The Beginning - Begin your day with a MORNING OFFERING, as Jesus is the Sunrise.
2. The Summit - Attend (or be in communion with) the HOLY MASS and receive HOLY COMMUNION. This is the summit of the day. As Jesus is like the sun at noon, in its highest position, He is the Center of life.
3. The Ending - End the day by tallying the spiritual bouquet and NIGHT OFFERING. As the sun sets, Jesus in the Eucharist sets and rests in one’s heart.

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world.
I offer them for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, reparation for sin, and the reunion of all Christians.
I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and of all Apostles of Prayer, and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.

Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Angelus Prayer

The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary: And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary…
Behold the handmaid of the Lord: Be it done unto me according to thy word.
Hail Mary…
And the Word was made Flesh: And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary…
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ Thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Act of Contrition

Spiritual Communion

O Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist, I love You and I adore You. Dwell in my soul and remain with me always.

Act of Contrition

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins because of thy just punishments, but most of all because they offend Thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin. Amen.

Night Offering

Trời đã xế chiều, Giêsu ơi con nhờ tay Mẹ Maria, mà dâng lên Chúa, dâng chúc lời cám ơn, dâng trót cả xác hồn. Các việc con làm, các lời con xin, cùng với mọi khó nguy con chịu trót một ngày qua. Cùng với bóng chiều tà, Giêsu Maria, con hòa ca, dâng về nơi bao la. Chúa ban phép lành, một đêm ngủ an bình, hồn trong xác tươi xinh.
