December 28, Feast of the Holy Family

December 28, Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph

 

+ For the family of the Church that all will be strengthened, purified and renewed through the grace of Christ's Body and Blood.  Lord of our families, we pray.

+ May all families be blessed by the overflow of the love, the unity, and the self-donation of the Holy Family and make these families truly happy.  Lord of our families, we pray.

+ For traditional families and all families everywhere:  may they be a place of love and comfort.  Lord of our families, we pray.

+ May we remember to include in our love and joy, those who are without a family for whatever reason.  Lord of our families, we pray.

+ Like Abraham who believed all that You told him, may we not hesitate to put our faith and trust in You as we face the challenges in our lives.  We ask that You strengthen our faith in You and give us greater courage to trust.  Lord of our families, we pray.

+ For all those who are sick especially Charlene Collora  and Maria Cinquina . Also, we pray for those who have died including Rosie Moriarty, Marianne LeGaz, and Rita Rockstad, mother of Susan Lester.  Lord of our families, we pray.

+ In thankfulness for all that is written in our new Parish Book of Thanksgiving.  We pray also for the intentions written in the Parish Book of Intercessions and those we hold in the silence of our hearts.  Lord of our families, we pray.
