SARA - When we get together for big family dinners a
certain question keeps coming up that people have
different opinions on. Maybe you might have an
answer. If I have a dinner at my house for
instance, and my husband who is the Priesthood
holder in our home is not present at the time,
should I call on someone to give the blessing on the
food because we are in my home?....Or, Do I ask one
of the other Priesthood holders to call on someone
to say the prayer? We want to be respectful and
honor the Priesthood, so I was wondering which one,
if any, is more correct?
JOEL - I can only give you my opinion on this and I think
that's all anyone can do. When you and your husband
were married you became one (Matt. 19: 5-6). Therefore when your
husband is gone you represent the head of the family.
It is your home, you are the hostess, therefore you
ask for someone to say the prayer.
