Our Family's Holy Family Collect

The General Collect of The Family Uher

This collect was written by a member of our Anglican family some years ago.  Perhaps you will find it useful as a collect of the Holy Family and additionally as a collect for your own family.  

Upon your family and mine, may God be merciful to us & bless us.

O mighty and merciful God, thou gavest thy Son Jesus Christ to be born of the Blessed Virgin Mary and to be guarded by the just, venerable, and blessed Saint Joseph, her most chaste spouse: Keep the Holy Family ever before our eyes so that we may rightly order our own family to the glory of thy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord who with thee and the Holy Ghost art one God in glory everlasting. Amen.

+O Holy Family, keep us within your embrace.
