Why I am No Longer a Tea Totaling Baptist!

Another reason to be happy to be Catholic:  Beer!

Pope Beer

Here is the official Beer Blessing:

V: Our help is in the name of the Lord.

R: Who made heaven and earth.

V: The Lord be with you.

R:  And with thy spirit.

Let us pray.

Bless, O Lord, this creature beer, which thou hast deigned to produce from the fat of grain: that it may be a salutary remedy to the human race, and grant through the invocation of thy holy name that, whoever shall drink it, may gain health in body and peace in soul.  Through Christ our Lord.

R: Amen.

The beer is then sprinkled with holy water.

Thanks to the Bad Catholic Blog (great name don't you think?) who I shamelessly stole this post from.
