About

A Blessing From The Lord! is a memorable quote spoken by Sir Luancelot The Brave (played by John Cleese) in the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail in response to God tasking King Arthur with the quest for the Holy Grail. The quote is used alongside a still from the scene as a reaction image to an above caption or screenshot, typically to represent the feeling of gratitude projected by the top property. The reaction is often used sarcastically, and occasionally used on its own as a reaction in post comments.

Origin

The original clip that the meme is pulled from is seen during "Monty Python and The Holy Grail," released on April 3rd, 1975, and is spoken at around the 24:50 mark (shown below).[1] In the scene, the Knights of the Roundtable are stopped by God, who tasks them with finding the Holy Grail, resulting in John Cleese's Sir Luancelot responding, "A blessing. A blessing from The Lord!"
