Recourse To The Holy Family


Today the Church celebrates the Feast of the Holy Family. In this day and age when the family is under great attack, let us have recourse to the Holy Family of Nazareth, following their example of unity, simplicity and holiness.
One of our priests at Mass today gave this acronym for family to demonstrate the importance of family.

Father
And
Mother
I
Love 
You

Prayer to the Holy Family
Lord Jesus Christ, 
who, being made subject to Mary and Joseph, 
didst consecrate domestic life 
by Thine ineffable virtues; 
grant that we, 
with the assistance of both,
may be taught by the example 
of Thy Holy Family 
and may attain to its everlasting fellowship.
Who livest and reignest forever. Amen.

Clare,
I was not able to find the author of the icon, but do know it is of Byzantine origin.
