Consecration of Family Prayer
O Jesus, behold our family before Thee.
Once more do we consecrate ourselves to Thee
that our trials and joys that 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.
