Consecration of the Family to the Holy Family

Here is the consecration prayer to the Holy Family. Holy Family_with Trinity_WIT, Jacob deO Jesus, our most loving Redeemer, who having come to enlighten the world with They teaching and example, didst will to pass the greater part of Thy life in humility and subjection to Mary and Joseph in the poor home of Nazareth, this sanctifying the Family that was to be an example for all Christian families, graciously receive our family as it dedicates and consecrates itself to Thee this day.   Do Thou protect us, guard us and establish amongst us Thy holy fear, true peace and concord in Christian love: in order that by living according to the divine pattern of Thy family we may be able, all of us without exception, to attain to eternal happiness.

Mary, dear Mother of Jesus and Mother of us all, by thy kindly intercession make this our humble offering acceptable in the sight of Jesus, and so obtain for us His graces and blessings.

O St. Joseph, most holy Guardian of Jesus and Mary, help us by thy prayers in all our spiritual and temporal needs; that so we may be enabled to praise our diving Savior Jesus, together with Mary and thee, for all eternity. Amen.

Say an Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be, three times.
