Catholic Prayer Before Meals

A Traditional Catholic Blessing


This is the most common and traditional Catholic prayer before meals. When Catholics gather for any occasion, this is the all purpose blessing before meals. After reciting this as a group, families will often invite individual prayers of thanks or petition.

Bless us,
O Lord,
and these your gifts,
which we're about to receive from your bounty.
Through Christ our Lord,
