    O Lord, we pray to you.

     

    Give confidence to those who are afraid,

    give your fear to those who have too much confidence,

    O Lord, we pray to you.

     

    Give light to those who are searching for you,

    preserve in your love those who have found you,

    God and Father of us all

    in Jesus, you Son and our Saviour,

    you have made us

    your sons and daughters

    May your grace and love

    help our families

    in every part of the world

    be united to one another

    in fidelity to the Gospel.

     

    May the example of the Holy Family

    with the aid of your Holy Spirit,

    guide all families, especially those most troubled

    to be homes of communion and prayer

    and to always seek your truth and live in your love

    through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us.
