To be honest, we didn’t have the so called graces or prayer before eating. The most important thing in our family is to wash our hands very well especially when we were children. We were 4 boys so you can imagine the dirt in our hands.
This is not to discount the prayers but I just want to emphasize that washing the hands is a scientific activity that will make us safe from the germs and the viruses that are around us. Pardon me for saying but the prayer will do nothing about them.
Do you go to church?
