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.
