Lord, bless us and bless this food that you give us.
May you be glorified Holy Father because you satisfy the needs of all your creatures.
Give to the poor, to the needy, to the victims of war, hunger, injustice, calamities, natural disasters. Give to all who suffer, to all who ask, give sinners the grace of conversion. And give us all the daily bread, Jesus the Eucharist.
From the Church
Bless us, O Lord, and these, Thy gifts, which we are about to receive from Thy bounty. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen." (Preceded and followed by the Sign of the Cross.)
