Maria, given us by God,
in the sweetness of the face of a child,
look upon this family
that is your very own
and in your motherliness,
grant perennial youth to our hearts.
May there arise in us
a renewed commitment in our vocation to follow Jesus
and may our charity be more joyful from this day.
Teach us that love can stand
with steadfastness at the foot of the cross.
