Catholic Prayer: Epiphany Meal Blessing

Description:

This is for before and after the Epiphany meal, and continued throughout the week until the Baptism of Our Lord.

Taken from the 1952 Roman Ritual translated by Philip Weller.

Prayer:

Before Meals:

V. The kings of Tarsis and of the islands shall offer presents, alleluia. R. The kinds of Arabia and of Saba shall bring gifts, alleluia.

Glory be to the Father, etc.

V. Lord, have mercy on us. R. Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us.

Our Father (until) V. And lead us not into temptation. R. But deliver us from evil.

Let us pray. Bless us, O Lord, and these thy gifts which we are about to receive from thy bounty. Through Christ our Lord. (May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.)

R. Amen.

After Meals: V. The kings of Tarsis and of the islands shall offer presents, alleluia. R. The kinds of Arabia and of Saba shall bring gifts, alleluia.

Glory be to the Father, etc.

V.Blessed is God in His gifts and holy in all His works; He who lives and reigns forever and ever. (May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.) R. Amen.
