V. Our help is in the name of the Lord.
R. Who has made heaven and earth.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with your spirit.
Let us pray.
Lord God eternal,
please bless and sanctify this cheese (or butter)
which You have been so kind as to produce from the fat of animals.
Grant that all Your faithful ones who partake of it
may be filled with every heavenly blessing
and with much grace abound in good works,
through Christ our Lord.
(Then it is sprinkled with holy water.)
