family consecration prayer

O Jesus,
behold our family prostrate before Thee.
Once more do we consecrate our selves to Thee -
our trials and joys -
that our home, like Thine, may ever be the shrine -
of peace, purity, love, labor, and faith.
Do Thou protect and bless all of us,
absent and present,
living and dead.
O Mary, loving Mother of Jesus -
and our Mother -
pray to Jesus for our family,
for all the families of the world,
to guard the craddle of the new born,
the schools of young and their vocations.
O Joseph, Holy Guardian of Jesus and Mary,
assist us by thy prayers,
in all the necessities of life.
Ask of Jesus that special grace which He granted to Thee,
to watch over our home at the pillow of the sick and the dying,
so that with Mary and Thee,
Heaven may find our family unbroken in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
