HOLY FAMILY MISSIONARIES OF PEACE

Our mission is to create loving and secure marriages and families which become the foundation for a peaceful and just world.

·         Our mission calls ordinary people to the extraordinary love of the Holy Family. 

·         The mission begins with our own lives, marriages and families. We must be the first to change and to conform ourselves to the ways of the Holy Family.

·         The mission is extended to works of peace which benefit the family at multiple levels: marriage preparation and renewal, safe birth, natural family planning, family life and parenting skills, and mental health counseling.

A PRAYER TO THE HOLY FAMILY FROM POPE FRANCIS

 

Jesus, Mary and Joseph
to you, Holy Family of Nazareth,
today we turn our gaze
with admiration and confidence;
in you we contemplate
the beauty of communion in true love;
to you we commend our families,
so that in them marvels of grace be renewed.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
alluring school of the Gospel:
teach us to imitate your virtues
with a wise spiritual discipline,
grant us a clear vision
that recognizes the work of Providence
in the daily realities of life.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
faithful custodian of the mystery of salvation:
help us to regain an appreciation for silence,
make our families cenacles of prayer
and transform them into little domestic Churches,
renew the desire for sanctity,
sustain the noble toil of work, of education,
of listening, of mutual understanding and of forgiveness.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
reawaken in our society the consciousness
of the sacred and inviolable character of the family,
an inestimable and irreplaceable good.
May every family be a place where goodness and peace are welcomed
for children and for the elderly,
for those who are sick and alone,
for those who are poor and needy.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
we pray to you with confidence,

we entrust ourselves to you with joy.
