Prayer of the Family before the Manger

Holy Family
Holy Family

Jesus, our brother, friend, God-close-to-us.
We are here today, in front of our family’s manger, to adore you, bless you,
thank you, praise you.

We see you together with Mary and Joseph.
The three form a single family united by love. The three are a sacred family,
because in it the presence of Jesus reigns, God-with-us.

We know that the family is a community of life and love. We know that the Christian family must be a domestic church, that is, a Christian community where faith, hope and charity are lived.

We know that every Christian family is also made sacred by the presence of God’s grace through the sacrament of marriage.

We want to thank you for this great love and we propose to You, and to Mary and Joseph, to do everything we can to live unity, peace, understanding, in family love.

Keep us together and give us the ability to understand and forgive each other when something breaks our unity.

Jesus, Joseph and Mary, Holy Family of Nazareth ask for us from God the grace of being a family like yours who will live the Gospel values. Amen
