“One expression of this attitude [of Jesus] is when we stop and give thanks to God before and after meals. I ask all believers to return to this beautiful and meaningful custom. That moment of blessing, however brief, reminds us of our dependence on God for life; it strengthens our feeling of gratitude for the gifts of creation; it acknowledges those who by their labours provide us with these goods; and it reaffirms our solidarity with those in greatest need.”
Pope Francis
Laudato Si', #227

Small gestures of love, of tenderness, of care, make people feel that the Lord is with us. This is how the door of mercy opens.
