Here also is the prayer for the family proposed by the Pope:
Prayer to the Holy Family
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, We contemplate in you The splendour of true love And we turn towards you with confidence.
Holy Family of Nazareth, Make our families Places of communion and cenacles of prayer, Authentic schools of the Gospel And small domestic churches.
Holy Family of Nazareth, May families never more experience Violence, being closed in on themselves and division, May people who are hurt or scandalised
Quickly find consolation and healing.
Holy Family of Nazareth, May the coming Synod of bishops Awaken in all the conscience of The sacred and inviolable character of the family And of its beauty in God’s plan.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, Listen and graciously hear our prayer.
