For Peace in the Family

“Lord, Jesus, my family needs Your help today. We are searching for tranquility and peace and an end to discord. Give us strength and compassion to understand each other, wisdom and love to help each other and the trust and patience we need to live peacefully together. Grant that through the intercession of Your mother, Mary, and Joseph, our family too may become a holy family, a family that works together as one, a family that embraces space and love, a family whose members are dedicated to each other and to God. Amen.”

  1. “Ecce quam bonum et quam jucundum, qui habitare fratres in unum.” “Behold how good and how joyous it is for brothers to live as one.” (Ps 133)
    I can still hear the voices of some 90 Marianist Brothers chant these words during Vespers in the Scholasticate.
    Yesterday my wife and I treated the whole family to a supper at Jim’s Place. Children and grand children told us that it was they who should be taking the wife and I to supper on our 57th Anniversary. They couldn’t imagine our joy at seeing them all at table with us, laughing and having a good time together. What a blessing it is to see our family together as one in joy and harmony.
