Word of Life
You took Mary and Jesus into your
home. You followed the prescripts of the Law,
presented Jesus in the Temple,
taught him skills at the plane and the lathe, and,
daily, you shared traditions which were built on the
covenants he came to fulfill.
Hear the prayers of the siblings, grandparents,
aunts, uncles, and entire families of children who
have been adopted.
May they be a source of loving welcome and a
fount of faith.
Through Christ our Lord.
St. Joseph, descendant of David, pray for us.”
