      Pope Francis’ Prayer for Families

      Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendor of true love, to you we turn with trust.
      Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families too may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the Gospel and small domestic Churches.
      Holy Family of Nazareth, may families never again experience violence, rejection and division:
      may all who have been hurt or scandalized find ready comfort and healing.
      Holy Family of Nazareth,  make us once more mindful of the sacredness and inviolability of the family, and its beauty in God’s plan.
      Jesus, Mary and Joseph, graciously hear our prayer.
