The Feast Of The Holy Family

In November, I wrote about Becoming A Holy Family.

This Sunday, on this beautiful Feast, I would like to share the Intercessory prayers for today’s Morning Prayer in the Liturgy of the Hours:

Let us adore the Son of the living God who humbled Himself to become a Son of a human family, and let us beseech Him:

Jesus, you became obedient; sanctify us.

Jesus, eternal Word of the Father, You made Yourself subject to Mary and Joseph,

  • teach us humility.

Jesus, you became obedient; sanctify us.

You are our teacher, and Your own mother pondered in her heart every one of your words and deeds,

  • make us attentive to Your word, and let us ponder it in hearts that are pure and good.

Jesus, you became obedient; sanctify us.

Christ, by Your work the world was made, but You were willing to be called a worker’s son,

  • teach us to work diligently.

Jesus, you became obedient; sanctify us.

Jesus, in the family at Nazareth You grew in wisdom, age and grace before God and men,

  • help us to grow in all things toward You, our Head.

Jesus, you became obedient; sanctify us.

Our Father, Who art in Heaven…………..

Father, help us to live as the Holy Family, united in respect and love.  Bring us to the joy and peace of your eternal home.  Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your son, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

Deo Gratias
