Family Prayer for World Meeting of Families
God, our Father, we are brothers and sisters in Jesus
your Son, one family, in the Spirit of your love.
Bless us with the joy of love.
Make us patient and kind, gentle and generous,
welcoming to those in need.
Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.
Protect all families with your loving care, especially those for whom we now pray:
[We pause and remember family members and others by name].
Increase our faith, strengthen our hope, keep us safe in your love.
Make us always grateful for the gift of life that
This we ask, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

One of the nicest things in life is to meet an open, friendly, warm, hospitable person. Hospitality is a hallmark of a true follower of Christ. Christ calls us to welcome the strangers in our midst. To be hospitable does not mean making them like us. It means accepting them as they are. This enables them to shed their strangeness, and become members of the community. To open one’s heart is to begin to live. To close it is to begin to die.

Praying for Families
As we prepare to welcome Pope Francis to Ireland in August, we continue our prayer for families. This week our focus is on Praying for families rejoicing in the innocence of children.
