I have included a quote and prayer today in order of the Pope’s visit. “Everyone is encouraged to pray the special prayer for the World Meeting of Families in 2015. It is a prayer of supplication to the Holy Family for the meeting’s success and your own family’s intentions.” (World Meetings of Families)
God and Father of us all,
in Jesus, your Son and our Savior,
you have made us
your sons and daughters
in the family of the Church.
May your grace and love
help our families
in every part of the world
be united to one another
in fidelity to the Gospel.
May the example of the Holy Family,
with the aid of your Holy Spirit,
guide all families, especially those most troubled,
to be homes of communion and prayer
and to always seek your truth and live in your love.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us!
