For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.
By your word, the whole world was created.
By your word, your Son was conceived
and became man.
Bless all fathers of children who have been placed
May these men always know of your great love for
them, in the same way that they will always love
Grant them your courage and your peace. Amen.
PETITION TO ST. JOSEPH
You, too, experienced fear and doubt, but trusted
always in the will of God.
Hear the prayers of these fathers
and bring them to Jesus.
St. Joseph, ever faithful, ever loving, pray for us.
Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be
