    JESUS, Son of God and Son of Mary, bless our fami-

    love that you found in your own family in the little town

    of Nazareth.

    MARY, Mother of Jesus and Our Mother , nour ish

    our family with your faith and your love. Keep us close

    to your Son, Jesus, in all our sorrows and joys.

    JOSEPH, Foster -father to Jesus, guardian and spouse of

    Mary, keep our family safe from harm. Help us in all

    times of discouragement or anxiety.

    HOLY FAMILY OF NAZARETH, make our family

    one with you. Help us to be instruments of peace. Grant

    that love, strengthened by grace, may prove mightier than
