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.Man, I love being Catholic!
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.
St. Izzy, when y'all go to the Brew at the Zoo this weekend, make sure someone pronounces this on the libations! [I guess you can omit the "+" part -- the signing over the beer itself -- which is the gesture of blessing reserved to the ordained. Unless you have our worthy Pastor or our worthy Deacon in attendance] And I would recommend this for the next parish Christmas party! :)
