PRAYER TO THE HOLY FAMILY
Lord Jesus Christ, who being made subject to Mary and Joseph, didst consecrate domestic life by Thine ineffable virtues, grant that we, with the assistance of both, may be taught by the example of Thy holy family and may attain to its everlasting fellowship. Who lives and reigns, world without end. Amen.
