Prayer to Saint Joseph Manyanet
founder of the Sons of the Holy Family
God our Father,
you have given Saint Joseph Manyanet
the gift to embody the virtues
of the human family of your Son Jesus.
By the grace of the Holy Spirit
you have called him to proclaim,
by word and example,
the Gospel of the family
of Jesus, Mary and Joseph of Nazareth.
Grant us by his intercession the grace to live this Gospel in our homes.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
PRAYER FOR OUR CONGREGATION
Lord Jesus, who wished to spend thirty years
of your mortal life in the family of Nazareth,
we ask you to call many young men to follow more closely
your way of life in our religious family,
that desires to perpetuate and realize in our time,
your virtues and examples of domestic sanctity.
Grant us the grace, in our entire ministry,
to help families grow in natural and spiritual virtue,
according to your will,
so that, becoming true domestic churches,
they may welcome and accompany, as a true gift,
the grace of religious and priestly vocation for their children.
Make of us, for young people,
joyful witnesses of the Gospel of Nazareth,
so that they also feel personally challenged
by the urgent needs of the family institution
and the present reality of the youth.
Mary Most Holy and Saint Joseph,
most loving parents and first teachers of Jesus,
look upon each one of us with your benevolence
and to all who come to experience our way of life;
grant us all the grace to be called brothers of Jesus
in this your family.
Jesus, Mary, and Joseph,
community of faith, hope, and charity,
of praise and service, school of the Gospel,
norm of consecrated life and model of family living,
make us participants in your life and images of your holiness
so that, like Saint Joseph Manyanet, and through his intercession, we may be, in the Church and for the Church,
sons, witnesses, and apostles of the mystery of Nazareth. Amen
PRAYER TO OBTAIN GRACES THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF THE SERVANT OF GOD MAGIN MORERA
God and Father of all humanity, you raised up in the Church the priest Magin Morera, fervent apostle of the human Family of your Son, to work tirelessly for the salvation of families and young people with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Help us, by imitating his life, to become faithful servants of the Gospel of Nazareth and, through his intercession, grant us the grace we now seek …
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
PRAYER TO OBTAIN FAVORS THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF THE SERVANTS OF GOD JAIME PUIG AND COMPANIONS
GOD, OUR FATHER Who have raised up in your church Your servants Jaime Puig and 19 Companions, Sons of the Holy Family apostles of the family and education of youth even to the generous shedding of their blood, we humbly implore by their intercession we may always and everywhere be instruments of peace and that you may grant us the favor that we request through their intercession. Through Christ, our Lord. Amen

R/.Always be praised the Holy Trinity, and Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
(Semper laudetur Trinitas, et Iesus, Maria et loseph)
Avete, Jesus, Mary and Joseph! May your names be on my lips and on my tongue your praise forever. Most welcome family of Nazareth, direct and keep my heart and body, my feelings, words and actions, within the law of the Father and the demands of his commandments, so as to please him in all things, and through your assistance, carry out to perfection the singular responsibility of my vocation, in this brotherly fellowship of life, praise and ministry with you, to your greater glory, my own good, and the salvation of God's people. AMEN.
Please Pray for Priests
we pray that the Blessed Mother
wrap her mantle around your priests
and through her intercession
strengthen them for their ministry.
We pray that Mary will guide your priests
to follow her own words,
“Do whatever He tells you” (Jn 2:5).
May your priests have the heart of St. Joseph,
Mary’s most chaste spouse.
May the Blessed Mother’s own pierced heart
inspire them to embrace
all who suffer at the foot of the cross.
May your priests be holy,
filled with the fire of your love
seeking nothing but your greater glory
and the salvation of souls.
Saint John Vianney, pray for us.
