you have given us the model of life
in the Holy Family of Nazareth.
Help us, O loving Father,
to make our family another Nazareth
where love, peace, and joy reign.
May we love one another
as God loves each one of us,
more and more each day,
and forgive each other’s faults
as you forgive our sins.
Help us, O Loving Father,
to take whatever you give
and give whatever you take with a big smile.
