Catholic Prayer: Ordinary Time, After Pentecost: Table Blessing 3

Description:

These prayers are used during the weeks following Pentecost Sunday until the First Sunday of Advent.

Prayer:

BEFORE THE MEAL

Leader: There is nothing in death or life, nothing in all creation that can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. For, to this day, he sustains us with his goodness, kindness, and loving favor.

ALL: Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his mercy endures for ever.

Leader: All-loving God, bless this table and through the work of your Spirit shape us into the likeness of your Son, Jesus Christ, the Lord.

ALL: Amen.

AFTER THE MEAL

Leader: Source, Guide, and Goal of all that is-- to you, Lord, be praise and thanksgiving, both now and for ever.

ALL: Amen.
