Prayer to the Holy Family

Holy Family
In my little kitchen, I have a lovely picture of the Holy Family, Jesus, Mary and Joseph.  They are surrounded by angels.  Jesus is walking towards Mary and Joseph is building something.  I say this prayer daily, reminding me of the holiness and humility of the Holy Family.
Oh most loving Jesus, who by your surpassing virtues and the example of your home life did hallow the household in which you did choose to live while on earth, mercifully look down upon this family, whose members humbly prostrate before you, imploring your protection.  Remember that we are yours, bound and consecrated to you.  Protect us in your mercy, deliver us from danger, help us persevere always in the imitation of your Holy Family, so that, by serving you and loving you faithfully during this mortal life, we may at length give you eternal praise in heaven. 
Oh Mary, dearest Mother, we implore your assistance, knowing that your divine Son will hearken to thy petitions. 
And do you, most glorious patriarch, St. Joseph, help us with your powerful patronage, and place our petitions in Mary’s hands, that she may offer them to Jesus Christ. 
Amen.
~Joan
