How to Approach Meal Time

May 16, 2017

“Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up
in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.”

-Ephesians 6:4


At meal times, you need to talk!

The greatest institution of all that our country has is the family, and it’s a family that has conversations together. Come to the table with topics and questions that you’re excited about. These conversations will create a turning toward one another, which will eventually lead to a Holy Communion.

This Communion will develop around your dinner table, or what we like to call, the altar of the domestic church.


O Lord, we thank you for the gifts of your bounty which we enjoy at our table. As you have provided for us in the past, so may you sustain us throughout our lives. While we enjoy your gifts, may we never forget the needy and those in want.
