” Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of our family.
Enlightened our hearts and minds that we may live more fully
this vocation to love.
In our daily life and work, may we reflect the self-giving love which you, O Father, eternally show with your Son and the Holy Spirit.
Let your love be evident in the pace that reigns in our home and in the faith we profess and live. May our family always be a place of generosity, understanding, forgiveness and joy.
Kindly give us the wisdom and courage to be a witness to your esternal design for the family; and grant that the Holy Family of Nazareth may always guide our path to holiness as a family.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God forever and ever.”
_Archbishop William E. Lori
