Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in you we contemplate the splendor of true love,
to you we turn with trust.
Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families
may also 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, may the approaching Synod of
make us once more mindful of the sacredness and inviolability of the
and its beauty in God‘s plan for the world.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, graciously hear our prayer.
