Dear Father of us all,
we praise You and give You glory today.
We thank You for the gifts You have shown to us:
for the love You have given to N. and N.
for the joy we are sharing,
and for this banquet we are about to begin.

Bless us, Father, and the food we eat,
and make us truly grateful for all your gifts.

We praise You through Christ our Lord.

Amen.

The Saints on Prayer

Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you. ~Saint Augustine of Hippo

What prayer could be more true before God the Father than that which the Son, who is Truth, uttered with His own lips? ~Saint John Chrysostom

He who prays most receives most. ~Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

Without prayer nothing good is done. God’s works are done with our hands joined, and on our knees. Even when we run, we must remain spiritually kneeling before Him. ~Saint Luigi Orione

Have confidence in prayer. It is the unfailing power which God has given us. By means of it you will obtain the salvation of the dear souls whom God has given you and all your loved ones.” Ask and you shall receive,” Our Lord said. Be yourself with the good Lord. ~Saint Peter Julian Eymard
