Amen!

Blessing over Beer from the Rituale Romanum:

Bless, O Lord, this creature beer, which thou hast deigned to produce from the fat of grain: that it may be a salutary remedy to the human race, and grant through the invocation of thy holy name; that, whoever shall drink it, may gain health in body and peace in soul. Through Christ our Lord.

  1. YES!! AMEN! I knew it all along that I could gain health in body and peace in soul from beer. (And a healthy-sized gut). I might just print that off and put it on my fridge so I can say the prayer whenever I pop open a beautiful beechwood aged beverage. Thank you!

  2. Dude, beer TOTALLY gives me health in body and peace in soul. ALWAYS. It is a majorly salutary remedy.

    Good to hear from you! Hope everything is great with you and Jess.

  3. Jacob Evelyn Douvier, that gets a big old WHATEVS from me. I post like ten times more often than you do.

    Oh, and Jonny, dumping a beer on cake does not mean you “used beer” in your “Christmas cake”. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Had this bit of wisdom been written in German, I might have ascribed it to my beloved Luther.

    Just having a look around Laura……..nice place you've got here.
