Consecration of Family Prayer


O Jesus, behold our family before Thee. Once more

do we consecrate ourselves to Thee - our trials and joys - our home

like Thine, may ever be a shrine of peace, purity, love, labor and faith.

Do thou protect and bless all of us, absent and present, living and dead.


O Mary, loving Mother of Jesus - and our Mother - pray to Jesus for

our family, for all the families of the world, to guard the cradle

of the new born, the schools of the young and their vocations.


O Joseph, Holy Guardian of Jesus and Mary, assist us by thy prayers

in all the necessities of life. Ask of Jesus that special grace which

he granted to thee, to watch over our home at the pillow of the sick

and the dying, so that Mary and with thee, Heaven may find our

family unbroken in the Scared Heart of Jesus.
