Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for your beautiful virtues of humility, obedience, poverty, modesty, charity, patience, and gentleness, You bless your people with peace and happiness in your body, the church. In your mercy look upon my family, and hear my request for special favors today. We belong to you, you have been faithful to us over many years and we entrust ourselves to your loving care. Preserve us from danger, give us help in time of need, and grant us the grace to persevere to the end, that we may praise You eternally in heaven. In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
