A Family Prayer


Grant us, O Lord Jesus,

The strength to imitate faithfully the example of your Holy Family

And to make our home another Nazareth.

May peace, love, and happiness prevail in all things and all games.

Grant us the grace to be the parents

We should be for our children.

Grant that our child may find solid support

For their human dignity

And for their growth in truth and love

Within the embrace of their team.

May Saint Sebastian watch and guide them in their efforts today,

As he guides us in support of our children.

Amen.
