Today is Mothering Sunday, a Christian festival celebrated throughout Europe that falls on the 4th Sunday in Lent.
Come Lord Jesus, be our guest,
and let these gifts to us be blessed.
(attributed to Martin Luther, 16th century)
The poor shall eat and be satisfied, and those who seek the Lord shall praise Him; their hearts shall live forever!
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
Lord, have mercy! (3 times)
O Christ God, bless the food and drink of Thy servants, for Thou art holy, always, now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.
(Orthodox Christian blessing before supper)
