Prayer of the Holy Family
Holy-Family-Postcard_transparent_-backgroundJesus, Mary and Joseph:

 

 

 

 

 

in you we contemplate

the splendor of true love;

we turn to you with confidence.

Holy Family of Nazareth:

make our families, also,

places of communion and cenacles of prayer,

authentic schools of the Gospel,

and little domestic Churches.

Holy Family of Nazareth:

may our families never more experience

violence, isolation, and division;

may anyone who was wounded or scandalized

rapidly experience consolation and healing.

Holy Family of Nazareth:

may the forthcoming Synod of Bishops,

reawaken in all an awareness

of the sacred character and inviolability of the family,

its beauty in the project of God.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph:

hear and answer our prayer. Amen.

Pope Francis, March, 2015
