The Pope’s message

Pray:

As referred to in the Southern Cross recently, let us celebrate this Season by saying this special grace before meals, as families or as individuals:

Loving God, We ask you to bless this food which comes to us through the work of many people, from the sowing of seeds in the earth to our table here today. We pray for those in our world who do not have enough food. Help us to always care for people and Your beautiful creation. Amen.

Loving God, Thank you for the food we are about to eat. Thank you for the people who made it. We pray for all those who do not have enough to eat. Help us to care for all creation. Amen.
