The College Latin Grace

Opening Grace – Benedictus, Benedicat, per Jesum Christum Dominum Nostrum Amen is said prior to the meal at formal and celebratory dinners.

Closing Grace – Benedicto, Benedicatur, per Jesum Christum Dominum Nostrum Amen is said following the meal at formal and celebratory dinners

This version of the Latin Grace is literally translated as: The blessed one may He bless through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen, and loosely translated as: May the blessed one bless [us/this meal] through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen.
