Grant us, O Lord
to imitate faithfully the example of your Holy Family
and to make our home another Nazareth.
May peace, love and happiness
Grant us the grace
to be the parents
we should be for our children.
Grant that our child may find solid support
for their human dignity
and for their growth in truth
within the embrace of our home.
When the time
comes for each of us
to go to the everlasting home you have prepared for us,
may your glorious Mother and St. Joseph
take us to you,
after the final grace
of a happy death.
