As we thank and praise You that the Lord revealed through a meal the gift of Himself in the Eucharist, so today we ask you that through our sharing in this meal we may continue to grow in Your gifts of faith, hope and love.
Look with favor on the Fordham family everywhere and, especially in this month of the holy souls, we beg You give refreshment, light and peace to all of the faithful departed Fordham graduates, their family members and in particular Father Allen Novotny, S.J., a fellow alum and a friend to this local Fordham circle.
As we bless this meal, make us mindful of those who lack their daily bread, and grant that we may share our gifts with all of those in need.
Bless us, O Lord, and these gifts which we receive in your goodness through Christ our Lord. Amen.
