(The Feast of the Holy Family was celebrated on December 30, 2016.)
Let us pray,
O Joseph, guardian and protector of the Holy Family,
pray for us that through the example of your holy
obedience all who dwell here may be guided in
their daily work and journey of faith.
O Mary, Our Mother, through you Christ made his
home with us on earth and sanctified the life of our
homes. Pray for us that we may grow in holiness by
your example of compassion and merciful love.
O Jesus, we set before you now our trials and joys. Look graciously upon this home,
that it be dedicated to your Holy Family in peace, faith, and the example of your
merciful love. Protect us both here and away, and
welcome those who have gone before us into
your heavenly home.
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
