Mabon Barley Bread Blessing

The making of Barley Bread is a traditional way to celebrate Mabon (September 20, 21 & 22nd) in the British Isles.
It is usually shaped into a sheaf of grain to grace the Harvest table.
There are many blessings that you can chant while kneading the dough to imbue the bread with luck and good fortune. Here is a favorite:

"Peace to all our family.
Plenty in all out days.
Protection of the sacred three.
Bless us in all their ways."
