Dear God, you are our Father and Mother, Our creator and our Friend.
May Christ be at the Center of all we do. May our parish be a Church where all are welcome, where all are able to find your love.
May our home, our domestic church, keep Christ at its center. May our family, as God's chosen ones, put on heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. May we outdo one another in forgiveness, thankfulness, peacefulness, and love.
May our home be holy, like the home of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. And one day, may our home be with you. Amen.
