A Beer Blessing

In Latin, no less:

Beer Blessing
From the Rituale Romanum (no 58)

Bene dic, Domine, creaturam istam cerevisae, quam ex adipe frumenti producere dignatus es: ut sit remedium salutare humano generi: et praesta per invocationem nominis tui sancti, ut, quicumque ex ea biberint, sanitatem corporis, et animae tutelam percipiant. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen

Bless, O Lord, this creature beer, that Thou hast been pleased to bring forth from the sweetness of the grain: that it might be a salutary remedy for the human race: and grant by the invocation of Thy holy name, that, whosoever drinks of it may obtain health of body and a sure safeguard for the soul. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

I usually just say "cheers for Jesus." But this is way, way, cooler.

This is awesome. I'm linking it tomorrow morning, and using it every time I have beer in front of me. ;-)

I love it!

This will have to be my thought as I brew up my second batch of beer in the next week or so.

Grace and Peace,
