The Holy Family 2017

Version 2

The Holy Family 2017: Painting by: Ronald Raab, CSC

O God of all creation, you invite our souls into sure rest in your light, forgiveness and mercy. Our lives, just as they are, remain in your family. For we are nothing without you. Guide us toward the light we seek. Restore all fragile relationships. Show us how to give you praise and to live on earth with grateful hearts. Help us sweep up our worldly cares in our family homes to make ready for your presence and your peace. Ready our hearts for your coming. Give us courage to live here in your comfort without violence, war and infidelity, without shame and hatred, and without fear of others. Help us celebrate hope with abandon and peace with eternal vigor as we come to admit that you are the source of all we need.  Amen
