O Jesus, our most loving Redeemer, who having come to enlighten the world with Thy teaching and example, didst will
to pass the greater part of Thy life
and subjection to Mary
in the poor home of Nazareth, thus sanctifying the Family
that was to be an example for all Christian
families, graciously receive our family
as it dedicates and consecrates itself to Thee this day. Do Thou protect us, guard us and establish amongst us Thy holy fear, true peace and concord in Christian
love: in order that by living according to the divine pattern of Thy family
we may be able, all of us without exception, to attain to eternal happiness.
Mary, dear Mother of Jesus
and Mother of us, by the kindly intercession
make this our humble offering acceptable in the sight of Jesus, and obtain for us His graces and blessings.
O Saint Joseph, most holy Guardian of Jesus
and Mary, help us by thy prayers
in all our spiritual and temporal needs; that so we may be enabled to praise our divine Savior Jesus, together with Mary
and thee, for all eternity.
Our Father, Hail Mary
be three times. Amen.
Lord and giver of all life,
help us to value each person, created in love by you.
In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts
to promote the dignity and value
of all human life, born and unborn.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen. continue reading
