Prayers for Meals Benedictio Mensæ
(Before Eating)
Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty, through Christ our Lord. Amen. Benedic, Domine, nos et hæc tua dona quæ de tua largitate sumus sumpturi per Christum Dominum Nostrum. Amen.

(After Eating)

We give Thee thanks, almighty God, for all Thy benefits, who liveth and reigneth world without end. Amen.
And may the souls of the faithfull departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
Agimus tibi gratias, omnipotens Deus, pro universis beneficiis tuis, qui vivis et regnas in sæcula sæculorum. Amen.
Fidelium animæ per misericordiam Dei requiescant in pace. Amen.
