We thank you for the gift of families.
We ask your blessing on all families today and always.
Be with us in our daily life together.
Be our guide in times of challenge.
Be our strength in times of difficulty
Be our joy in times of delight
Help our families to grow stronger in your love
And show us how to love one another
As you have loved us.
May we welcome Jesus as the unseen guest in our home.
May we be His voice and hands,
Respecting and caring for those we meet.
May we look to the example of Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
As we strive to be the best family that we can be.
Most Holy Family of Nazareth, pray for us.

Jesus Christ, Yesterday, Today and Forever,
One with us in our humanity,
Be with us in birth,
Be with us in life,
Be with us in death.
Lord Jesus, bless our Diocese of Sale.
Bless us in our mountains and valleys, plains, rivers and seas.
Bless us in our natural resources.
Bless us in our cities and towns.
Lord Jesus Christ, teach us communion with our local community:
To know, love and serve our families and friends,
To know, love and serve those who are poor,
To know, love and serve those who wait for you.
Lord Jesus Christ, in this ever changing land,
Grace us to listen to your Word,
Grace us to wonder at your presence,
Grace us to welcome you into our midst.
To you, our Redeemer, the beginning and end of time,
To the Father, unending source of all good,
And to the Holy Spirit, seal of infinite love,
Be all honour and glory, now and forever. Amen.
