Grace and Thanks

I was reading this post over at LA Catholic about saying grace.

We try and say grace before every meal in our house, using the traditional:

Bless us O Lord, and these Thy gifts,
which we are about to receive,
from Thy Bounty,
through Christ our Lord.

Then we usually spend a moment in silent thanks. I like the fact that no matter how crazy my day, I know there will always be time
set aside to thank God for everything he has done for me.

LA Catholic adds that they follow grace with this prayer:

May the souls of the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

I think that is wonderful. Its so important to remember and pray for those souls
that have passed. I'm going to start saying that prayer regularly as well.

God Bless.

Your right, that would be a great opportunity to pray for the souls that have passed on. Happy Lord's day!
