Fill our parents
with Your choicest blessings:
enrich their souls with Your Holy grace;
grant that they may faithfully and constantly
guard that likeness of Your union with Your Church,

May they ever walk in the way of Your commandments
and may we their children
be their joy here on earth
and their crown of glory
that both our father and mother
may attain to extreme old age
and enjoy continuous health in mind
May they give You abundant thanks
because You have bestowed upon them
the great gift of parenthood.
