Happy Feast Day Our Lady Of The Rosary

Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, we, the members of this family, place ourselves under your protection.  Through the mysteries of the rosary may we know your plan of salvation and learn how much you love us. May your kingdom come in our family so that we may one day share in your heavenly home hereafter. Amen.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, be a mother to each one in this home. As in Cana you watched over the needs of a married couple, watch now over the needs of this family. And as you stood by the cross of your Son and saw him die, stand by each one of us, father, mother, children, and lead us at the hour of death to our true home in heaven. Amen.
