BLESSING OF THE TABLE BEFORE THE GRAND MEAL ON SUNDAY OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE LORD

When due to the epidemic the traditional Polish Święconka was canceled, the Episcopal Conference, based on the Book of Beatitudes, prepared a rite of blessing food by the head of the family. This can be done before a festive Christmas meal, when the whole family gathers at the table.

The family father or chairman lights a candle on the table and says:

Christ rose from the dead. Alleluia.

Everyone replies:a

He is truly risen. Alleluia.

Then the participants reads the text of the Bible.

Mt 6, 31 ab.32b-33: 

Brothers and sisters, let us listen to the words of the Gospel according to Saint Matthew.

Jesus said to his disciples: "Don't worry too much and say: what will we eat? what shall we drink After all, your heavenly Father knows that you need all this. Strive first for the kingdom of God and His justice, and all this will be added to you. "

After reading the text, the chairman says:

Let's pray.

We are happy to praise You, Lord Jesus Christ, who, after your resurrection, appeared to the disciples in breaking bread. Be with us when we gratefully consume these gifts, and as we welcome you in our brothers today, welcome us as revelers in your kingdom. Which you live and reign for ever and ever.

All: Amen.

After the meal, the family father or chairman says: The students met the Lord. Alleluia

All: When breaking bread. Alleluia.

Let's pray:

God, the source of life, fill our hearts with paschal joy and, just as you gave us food from the earth, let us always have a new life in us, which Christ has served us through his death and resurrection and in his mercy he gave it to us. Who lives and reigns forever and ever.

All: Amen.
