At table, all begin:
All:    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, + and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Let us take a few moments of silence to offer our Lenten fasting and almsgiving to our heavenly Father,
and to thank the God who gives us this good food.

After some silence, all may sing Amazing Grace, a Lenten hymn or “Adoramus te, Christe.”

Protector God, who made all things at the beginning and gave them to us to use well,
you expelled Adam and Eve from paradise, but your Son, Jesus, opens paradise to us.
As we fast and pray and give alms this Lent, help us fast, pray and give alms always.
May we learn the lesson of Christian living that Jesus taught us.
Your Holy Spirit fills our hearts with thanks and praise for all the wonders you have done and for this good food before us.
And so we pray together.

All:    Bless us, O Lord, and these your gifts
            which we are about to receive from your bounty.
            Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
