Our Father, who sets the solitary in families: we commend to your continual care the homes in which we, your people, dwell. Protect us, we ask you, from every root of bitterness, the desire for selfish gain, and the pride of life.
Fill our homes with faith, integrity, knowledge, self-discipline, patience, and godliness. Knit together in constant affection we who, through the covenant of marriage, have been made one flesh.
Turn the hearts of the parents to the children, and the hearts of the children to the parents, and so fan into flame a fervent charity among us all, that we may consistently demonstrate love to one another. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
