Origin of the meal prayer


I’ve found a Latin version of the “Bless us our Lord…” meal prayer on other websites*.

  1. Does anyone know the history of this prayer?
  2. Is the original version of this prayer Latin or some other language?

I apologize if this is not the correct forum. If there would be a better one, please point me there.

Thank you,
