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,
which You did imprint upon them on their wedding day.
Fill them with Your spirit
of holy fear,
which is the beginning of wisdom;
inspire them to impart it to their children.
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.
Lord and giver of all life,
help us to value each person, created in love by you.
In your mercy, guide and assist our efforts
to promote the dignity and value
of all human life, born and unborn.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Amen. continue reading
