Oratio in honorem Sanctae Familiae
Prayer in Honor of the Holy Family

This prayer was formerly the collect for the feast of the Holy Family.

DOMINE Iesu Christe, qui Mariae et Ioseph subditus, domesticam vitam ineffabilibus virtutibus consecrasti: fac nos, utriusque auxilio, Familiae sanctae tuae exemplis instrui et consortium consequi sempiternum: Qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum. Amen. 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.

From the Raccolta # 276, from the Roman Missal (1962). (S. P. Ap., Sept. 3, 1936)
