Thou art so constant in Thy devotion, O Lord, that we come to this table to accept another manifestation of Thy love with hearts filled with humiliation–ashamed that in accepting all Thy gifts we have, through our spiritual weakness, returned nothing in duty to Thee and our fellow-man. Help us to see the Light which Thou hast told us to spread “far and wide,” that not only ourselves but all others will have the blessing of our Holy Father. Amen.
(A William Nyce., and Hubert Bunyea. Grace Before Meals. Philadelphia, PA, 1911)
