Spend some time with her and she will wrap you in her mantle


Celebrating 
The Feast of the Holy Family!

The family is called the domestic church and is the foundation of love in our world.
As the family goes,
so does the community, and the world.

Please join the Knights of Columbus in consecrating your home to the Holy Family.

Consecration to the Holy Family

O Lord Jesus,
you lived in the home of Mary and Joseph in Nazareth.
There you grew in age, wisdom and grace
as you prepared to fulfill your mission
as our Redeemer.
We entrust our family to you.

O Blessed Mary,
You are the Mother of our Savior.
At Nazareth you cared for Jesus
and nurtured him in the peace and joy of your home.
We entrust our family to you.

O Saint Joseph,
You provided a secure and loving home for Jesus and Mary,
and gave us a model of fatherhood
while showing us the dignity of work.
We entrust our family to you.

Holy Family,
We consecrate ourselves and our family to you.
May we be completely united
in a love that is lasting, faithful
and open to the gift of new life.
Help us to grow in virtue,
to forgive one another from our hearts,
and to live in peace all our days.
Keep us strong in faith, persevering in prayer,
diligent in our work, and generous towards those in need.
May our home, O Holy Family,
truly become a domestic church
where we reflect your example in our daily life.
Amen

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us!

Prayer composed by Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore, Supreme Chaplain
