How many of you in the States will be saying this about now? But did you know it is an actual prayer:
Bless, O Lord, this lard (or bacon), that it may be an effective remedy for the human race, and grant that through the invocation of Thy holy name all those who eat of it may obtain health of body and protection of their souls. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
These and other prayers and blessings over food can be found at Catholic Online
Lard and bacon as medicine. Now that’s something I can support!
