As our Holy Father, Pope Francis, concludes the Eighth World Meeting of Families with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, in communion with him and all our sisters and brothers at this gathering and throughout the world, we pray:

+ God and Father of us all,
in Jesus, your Son and our Savior,
you have made us
your sons and daughters
in the family of the Church.

May your grace and love
help our families
in every part of the world
be united to one another
in fidelity to the Gospel.

May the example of the Holy Family,
with the aid of your Holy Spirit,
guide all families, especially those most troubled,
to be homes of communion and prayer
and to always seek your truth and live in your love.

Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us!
