Whenever I travel, I like to adapt to the environment that I am in. I try to learn a few key phrases in the native language.
I try to learn a few prayers which come in handy when you are going to mass in another country.
Be it for a family gathering, a wedding, or even a funeral, praying in another language is amazing. It feels deeply spiritual and connects you with the people who came before us.
In case you missed it, here is the Lord's Prayer (Our Father) in German.
Here is how to offer a sign of peace in German for a Catholic mass:
The Lord's Prayer in German | Das Vaterunser auf Deutsch
Vater unser im Himmel,
geheiligt werde dein Name.
Dein Reich komme.
Dein Wille geschehe,
wie im Himmel so auf Erden.
Unser tägliches Brot gib uns heute.
Und vergib uns unsere Schuld,
wie auch wir vergeben unsern Schuldigern.
Und führe uns nicht in Versuchung,
sondern erlöse uns von dem Bösen.
Denn dein ist das Reich und die Kraft
und die Herrlichkeit in Ewigkeit.
Vater Unser auf Englisch | The Lord's Prayer in English
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For Yours is the kingdom
and the power
and the glory forever.
