Bless us, O Lord,
and these Your gifts

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.
