An Advent Family Blessing

An Advent Family Blessing

In the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…

Loving Father,

We ask that you bless this family and all the families who are faithfully trying to build your Kingdom here on earth. 

Help them know and experience your love through their interactions with one another.  In turn help them share that love with the people who come into their lives every day searching for hope and peace.

Help them to exemplify the virtues of the Holy Family and never lose sight of their significance in our Church.  Like the Holy Family they will encounter struggles, disappointments and times when they are unsure of what the future holds for their family.  Be with them as their light,  as they journey through those dark times.

Most importantly help our young people experience Your love, security, trust, hope and forgiveness in their homes, so they can become strong and confident in their faith.  Willing to witness to your amazing grace and share their faith openly.

For it is through their faith that our young people will change our world and make it a better place.  Bringing your light and love into the lives of strangers, friends and family.

We ask all this through Christ your Son…Amen

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…
