our most loving Redeemer,
who having come to enlighten the world
with Thy 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,
thus 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.
dear Mother of Jesus and Mother of us,
by the kindly intercession
make this our humble offering acceptable in the sight of Jesus,
and obtain for us His graces and blessings.
O Saint 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 divine Savior Jesus,
together with Mary and thee,
for all eternity.
(Recite the Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory 3 times.)
