Thanksgiving After Meals Prayer


We give thee thanks for all thy benefits, O Almighty God, who lives and reigns forever, and we pray that through the merits and intercession of the saints, thou wouldst release from purgatory those souls who are in pain. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


Gratias tibi agimus, omnipotens Deus, pro universis beneficiis tuis, qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum, et pro quibus petimus ut per merita et intercessionem sanctorum tuorum, animas defunctorum de purgatorio liberare digneris. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.
