Lord, Your apostle, Paul, once said:
"If we suffer with Christ,
we shall also be glorified with Him.
Therefore whoever participates in the sufferings of our Redeemer
enjoys the sure and certain hope of the glory He has promised."
God, all powerful,
look upon Your family with kindness:
may Your generous bounty take care of our bodies
and Your solicitude watch over our souls.
This we ask of You through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son.
