From the Roman Canon

"Supplices te rogamus, omnipotens Deus: iube haec perferri per manus sancti Angeli tui in sublime altare tuum, in conspectu divinae maiestatis tuae; ut quotquot ex hac altaris participatione sacrosanctum Filii tui Corpus et Sanguinem sumpserimus, omni benedictione caelesti et gratia repleamur, Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen."
"We most humbly beseech Thee, Almighty God: to command that these offerings be borne by the hands of Thy holy Angel to Thine altar on high in the sight of Thy Divine Majesty, that as many of us at this altar shall partake of and receive the most holy Body and Blood of Thy Son may be filled with every heavenly blessing and grave, Through Christ our Lord. Amen. "
