Lord, we thank you for the blessings of this day and for this time together as family.
We thank you for this wonderful meal and for this time we share.

O Jesus, through the most pure heart of Mary,
I offer you my prayers, works, joys,

+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

There is a rich treasury of prayers in the Catholic Tradition, which may be prayed with others or alone. The ‘Our Father’ is the prayer Jesus taught us (Matthew 6:9-15, Luke 11:1-4).

Jesus, a Jew, prayed regularly with his synagogue community (Luke 4). He also went often to quiet places to pray to the Father, sometimes alone, or with his closest friends (eg. Luke 6:12; Mark 6:31-33)

In every celebration of Eucharist, on feastdays for particular saints, and on the feast of ‘All Saints’, Catholic Christians remember we are not alone on this earthly journey.
