for whom I now pray
and upon whom I now ask you
to shower your blessings.
With St. Joseph
as my guide,
may I always be ready
to spend my life
Bless my wife whom you have given to me as my spouse,
sharing in your wondrous work of creation.
May I see her as my equal
and treat her with the love of Christ

be her guide
and help her to find your peace and your grace.
Bless my children
with your life
May the example of your son

that the Gospel may always

Watch over it so that in the strength
of your love
its members may enjoy prosperity,
possess the gift of your peace and,
as the Church alive in this home,
always bear witness
to your glory
in the world.
