Launch of the World Meeting of Families 2018


God, our Father, We are brothers and sisters in Jesus your Son, One family,

in the Spirit of your love. Bless us with the joy of love. Make us patient and kind,

gentle and generous, welcoming to those in need. Help us to live your forgiveness

and peace. Protect all families with your loving care,

Especially those for whom we now pray:


[We pause and remember family members and others by name].


Increase our faith, Strengthen our hope, Keep us safe in your love,

Make us always grateful for the gift of life that we share.

This we ask, through Christ our Lord, Amen
