"The Christian family is . . . where God's children learn to pray 'as the Church' and to persevere in prayer" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 2685). In addition to the prayer that frames each day, this section offers special blessings and prayers for important moments in the life of a family. Whether in times of joy or times of grief, God is always with us.
