Dedication of One’s Family:
Most loving Jesus, by Your sublime and beautiful virtues of humility,
obedience, poverty, modesty, charity, patience, and gentleness, You blessed
with peace and happiness the family which You chose on earth. In Your mercy
look upon my family. We belong to You, for we have received Your many
blessings over many years and we entrust ourselves to Your loving care.
Look upon my
family in Your loving kindness, preserve us from danger, give us help in
time of need, and grant us the grace to persevere to the end in imitation of
Your holy Family, so that having revered You and loved You faithfully on
earth, we may praise You eternally in heaven.
Mother, to your intercession we have recourse, knowing that your Divine Son
will hear your prayers. Glorious patriarch, Saint Joseph, help us by your
powerful prayers and offer our prayers to Jesus through Mary’s hands. Amen.
