O Most Loving Jesus, Who, by Thy surpassing virtues and example of Thy home life, did hallow the household in which Thou chose to live while on earth, mercifully look down upon our families, whose members humbly prostrate before Thee and implore Thy protection. Remember that we are Thine, bound and consecrated to Thee by special devotion. Protect us in Thy mercy, deliver us from danger, help us in our necessities and impart to us the strength to persevere always in the imitation of Thy Holy Family. So that by serving Thee and loving Thee faithfully during this mortal life, we may at length give Thee eternal praise in Heaven.
O Mary, dearest Mother, we implore thy assistance, knowing thy Divine Son will hearken to thy petitions.
And do thou, most glorious patriarch St. Joseph, help us with thy powerful patronage and place our petitions in Mary’s hands, that she may offer them to Jesus Christ.
+Amen+ ~from the prayerbook “Blessed Be God” by Fr. Charles Callan O.P. and Fr. John McHugh, O.P. – 1925
