The Gift of Family

Columban Daily Prayer
January 11, 2024

Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of our family.
Enlighten our hearts and minds that we
may live more fully in this vocation to love.
In our daily life and work, may we reflect
the self-giving love which You, O Father,
eternally show with Your Son and the Holy Spirit.
Let Your love be evident in the peace
that reigns in our home and the faith
we profess and live.
May our family always be a place of generosity,
understanding, forgiveness, and joy.
Kindly give us the wisdom and courage
to be witnesses to Your eternal design for the family;
and grant that the Holy Family of Nazareth
may always guide our path to holiness as a family.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in unity
of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.
