Watch over my family, Dear Lord… FEAST OF THE HOLY FAMILY
Loving God, I offer thanks for the gifts of my family. Help us to work together for peace and harmony in our relationships.
Grant us the grace to accept each other’s faults and weaknesses. Protect us from harsh words and hurt feelings. Assist us to encourage one another’s strengths and abilities. Lead us to mutual understanding and support.
May we always forgive each other’s failings and rejoice in one another’s successes.
Watch over my family, Dear Lord. Bless us with good health and happiness. Fill our hearts with love, patience and kindness for one another, now and always. Amen
(Recited by the late Fr. Noel O’Connor, SAC)
