O Heavenly Father, I commend my children and grandchildren to Thy care.
Be Thou their God and Father; and mercifully supply whatever is lacking in me
through frailty or negligence. Strengthen them to overcome the corruptions of
the world, whether from within or without; and deliver them from the secret
snares of the enemy. Pour Thy grace into their hearts, and strengthen and multiply
in them the gifts of Thy Holy Spirit, that they may daily grow in grace
and in knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ; and so, faithfully serving Thee
here, may come to rejoice in Thy presence hereafter.
May their fathers follow the example of that great Saint Joachim
who with the aid of St. Anne raised their daughter Mary
who would be called Blessed among women.
Peace of Christ to ALL
