A Blessing by Parents for Their Children


inexhaustible source of life and author of all good,

We bless and we thank you

for brightening our communion of love by your gift

of children.

Grant that our children will find in the life of this family

such inspiration

that they will strive always for what is right and good

and one day, by your grace,

reach their home in heaven. . . . Amen.

[Jesus] went down with [Mary and Joseph] and came to

Nazareth, and was obedient to them; and his mother kept all

these things in her heart.
