CONSECRATION TO THE HOLY FAMIL YApproved by Pope Leo XIII, 20th June 1892.
O Most Loving Jesus,
Who by Thy ineffable virtues
and by the example of Thy domestic life
didst consecrate the family
which Thou didst choose on earth;
in Thy clemency look down upon this household
humbly prostrate before Thee
and imploring Thy mercy.
Remember that this family belongs to Thee,
for to Thee we have in a special way
dedicated and devoted ourselves.
Look upon us in Thy loving kindness,
preserve us from every danger,
give us help in the time of need,
and grant us the grace to persevere
to the end in the imitation of Thy Holy Family;
that having revered Thee
and loved Thee faithfully upon earth,
we may bless and praise Thee eternally in heaven.
O Mary, most sweet Mother,
to thy intercession we have recourse,
knowing that thy Divine Son will hear thy prayers.
And do thou,
O glorious Patriarch Saint Joseph,
assist us by thy powerful mediation,
and offer by the hands of Mary our prayers to Jesus.
