In the name of the Father, and of the Son

and of the Holy Spirit. Amen


Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate

the splendour of true love; to you we turn with trust.

Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families too

may be places of communion and prayer, authentic

schools of the Gospel and small domestic churches.

Holy Family of Nazareth, may families never again

 experience violence, rejection and division;

may all who have been hurt or scandalized find

 ready comfort and healing.

Holy Family of Nazareth, make us once more mindful

of the sacredness and inviolability of the family, and

 its beauty in God’s plan. Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Graciously hear our prayer. Amen.


Glory be, to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

world without end. AMEN


In the name of the Father, and of the Son

 and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
