Protect Our Family

O Jesus, our most loving Redeemer,
Who came into the world
to enlighten it by Your teaching and by Your example,
and Who will to pass the greater part of Your mortal life
in the poor cottage at Nazareth,
in humble subjection to Mary and Joseph,
thus sanctifying that Family
which was to be the model of all Christian families;
graciously receive this family
which dedicates and consecrates itself to You this day.
protect us, watch over us !
Bestow upon us Your holy fear,
peace, concord, and Christian love;
that so, by the imitation of Your family
as our pattern and model,
we may each and all obtain everlasting happiness.
