Isn’t it Great to be Catholic?

Blessing of Beer

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

“Summorum Pontificum” allowed this to be used at any pub, bar, alehouse, inn, tavern or saloon. An indult may still be needed for clubs – based on the discretion of the bishop’s conference.

We’ll have to check with Fr. Zuhlsdorf to see if the Latin was translated properly. 🙂

H/T to Per Christum

  1. Not bad:

    Bless, O Lord, this creature of beer, which You deigned to bring forth from the pithy part of the grain: in order that it be a remedy for the salvation of the human race: and grant by means of the invocation of Your Holy Name, that whoever will have imbibed from it, may obtain health of body and protection of soul. Amen.
