Father, increase our family’s love for one another. May we honor each other in times

of happiness or hardship, bearing with one another in love, just as You love us.

In a special way, help us to strive for holiness. If You call any of us to a Religious Vocation,

help us to respond with courage and joy.

Together, we make heaven our goal, and pledge, with your grace, to help each other on life’s

journey to You. We ask this through the intercession of the Holy Family, Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
