The Feast of the Holy Family

 (Lk 2, 51)  Jesus went down with them, and came to Nazareth and was subject to them.

 O Lord Jesus Christ, Who by subjecting Thyself to Mary and Joseph didst consecrate family life with wonderful virtues;  grant that, by their joint assistance, we may fashion our lives after the example of Thy Holy Family, and obtain everlasting fellowship with it.  Who livest, etc. 

~ Prayer from the feastday Mass of the Holy Family
