Prayer on the Feast of the Holy Family (Octave of the Nativity)

My God, I want to speak to you about my family.

I begin by naming to you the members of this family.

I thank you for the blessings that you bestow upon them.

I ask you to help them succeed in life.

Help them to make a large place for you in their hearts

and to love you, as you love them.

It is in remembrance of Mary, Joseph and Jesus that I am asking you.
