Official Family Prayer for World Meeting of Families

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 vve 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 vve ask, through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Mary, mother and guide, pray for us.

Saint joseph, father and protector, pray for us.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.

Saints Louis and Zelie Martin, pray for us.


 

 

 


                                                                                                                                                                  

Yours Sincerely,

                                                                                                                                 I really appreciate your kind words, the thoughts and prayers during this crisis. On behalf of Fr Tom and our entire family, I would like to say a very special word of thanks to each one of you that have been praying for our family for the last 18 months. May God richly bless you with an even deeper understanding of His love and purposes as you live for him!

Thank you all so much,                                                                                                                                                                  

Yours Sincerely,

Selma Jose Uzhunnalil

                                                                                                                                                                                                           There are no words to express how thankful we are to have people in our lives who are willing to pray for us, who think about us, who love us. It is so wonderful to have such a loving community and church family. A special thank you to Fr Michael Kelleher and Fr Chris O'Donovan for their kindness and prayerful support during Fr Tom’s captivity. Our entire family had a very difficult time since Fr Tom was abducted by the ISIS in Yemen in March 2016. God's grace is the thing that we have needed very much through this experience, and His grace has been poured out upon us in a way that we have never before experienced. My prayer is that God will pour out a rich blessing upon each person that has been praying for Fr Tom and his family.                                                                                                                                 I really appreciate your kind words, the thoughts and prayers during this crisis.
