(Recommended after the family Rosary.)
Heavenly Father, You have given us a model of life in the Holy
Family of Nazareth. Help us, O loving Father, to make our family
another Nazareth where love, peace, and joy reign.
May it be deeply contemplative, intensely Eucharistic, and vibrant
with joy. Help us to stay together in joy and sorrow through family
prayer. Teach us to see Jesus in the members of our family, especially
in their distressing disguise.
May the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus make our hearts meek and humble
like His and help us to carry out our family duties in a holy way.
May we love one another as God loves each one of us more and more
each day, and forgive each others' faults as You forgive our sins.
Help us, O loving Father, to take whatever You give and to give
whatever You take with a big smile.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, cause of our joy, pray for us. St.
Joseph, pray for us. Holy Guardian Angels, be always with us, guide
and protect us. Amen.
