on Wednesday, 01 January 2014. Posted in Saints & Blessed

The Holy FamilyHere is the translation of Pope Francis’ prayer for the Pilgrimage of Families of the World for the Year of Faith, Sunday, October 27, 2013:

Jesus, Mary and Joseph to you, Holy Family of Nazareth, today we turn our gaze with admiration and confidence; in you we contemplate the beauty of communion in true love; to you we commend our families, so that in them marvels of grace be renewed.

Holy Family of Nazareth,

alluring school of the Gospel:

teach us to imitate your virtues

with a wise spiritual discipline,

grant us a clear vision that

recognizes the work of Providence

in the daily realities of life.

Holy Family of Nazareth, faithful

custodian of the mystery of salvation:

help us to regain an appreciation

for silence, make our families

cenacles of prayer and transform them into little domestic Churches,

renew the desire for sanctity,

sustain the noble toil of work, of education, of listening, of mutual understanding and of forgiveness.

Holy Family of Nazareth, reawaken

in our society the consciousness of

the sacred and inviolable character of the family, an inestimable and

irreplaceable good. May every family be a place where goodness and

peace are welcomed for children

and for the elderly, for those who

are sick and alone, for those who

are poor and needy.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, we pray to you with confidence, we entrust

ourselves to you with joy. Amen.
