Bringing the Scriptures back into our lives, be we priest, religious or lay, is a mark of Christian excellence. What could be more a part of our lives than our food? A short Scripture reading, followed by a suitable prayer, makes a remarkably fitting ‘opening’ and ‘closing’ for our meals! This is a handy booklet for families as well as for Catholic institutions like boarding houses and hostels, for Small Christian Communities and for seminaries and convents, for formal dinner meets as well as for picnics. The recurrent themes of thanksgiving, compassion, concern for the poor and suffering would help to bring about a deeper significance to user and diner alike.
