Pausing to Say, "Thank you, O Lord."

For this Thanksgiving season, Mr. P. wants to say "Thank you, Lord."

Here are two prayers to make sure you learn.

GRACE BEFORE MEALS: Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts which we are about to receive from Thy bounty through Christ Our Lord.  Amen.

THE HOLY MASS: The best way to say thank you to God is to attend Mass.  Even more, to receive Holy Communion in the state of grace. 

Also, during the month of November, remember, the Church prays for the souls of the dead.  We cannot forget the poor souls in purgatory.  Have Mass offered for them.  Pray the rosary for them.

Here's another prayer to learn:

REQUIEM:  + Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.  May they rest in peace.  Amen.

Okay, so that's actually three -- not two -- prayers to learn: Grace Before Meals, the Requiem, and the Holy Mass, especially the new translation of the Third Roman Missal.

Class dismissed.
