OFFICIAL FAMILY PRAYER FOR WMOF2018

God, our Father, we are brothers and sisters in Jesus your Son,

One family, in the Spirit of your love.

Bless us with the joy of love.

Make us patient and kind, gentle and generous, welcoming to those in need.

Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.

Protect all families with your loving care,

Especially those for whom we now pray:

Pause to remember family members and others

Increase our faith, strengthen our hope,

Keep us safe in your love,

Make us always grateful for the gift of life that we share.

This we ask, through Christ our Lord. 

Amen

 

POPE FRANCIS

@ PONTIFEX

  • When we are firmly united to the God who loves and sustains us, we are able to withstand all life’s difficulties and challenges.
