Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

A Father's Thanksgiving Prayer



Father - Bless ye.

All- Bless ye.

Father- The eyes of all hope in Thee, O Lord.

All- And Thou gives them their food in due season. Thou openest Thy hand, and fillest with blessing every living creature.

Father- Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

All- As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Father- Lord, have mercy on us.

All- Christ, have mercy on us. Lord, have mercy on us. (The Our Father, silently.)

Father- And lead us not into temptation.

All- But deliver us from evil. Amen.

Father- Let us pray. Bless us, O Lord, and these Thy gifts, which we are about to receive, from thy bounty through Christ, Our Lord.

All- Amen.


Grace after Thanksgiving Dinner

(Suggestion: Say this as soon as all are finished with dessert;
then the children may leave to play, and the grownups may stay and talk.)

Father- Do Thou, O Lord, have mercy on us.

All- Thanks be to God.

Father- Let all Thy works, O Lord, praise Thee.

All- And let all Thy Saints bless Thee.

Father- Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.

All- As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Father- We give Thee thanks, O Almighty God, for all Thy benefits. Who livest and reignest world without end.

All. Amen.
