To pray this Act of Consecration to the Holy Family, is to surrender yourself to our Lord, through the Holy Family. It is to set your family apart for God, and to strive to live your family life, with the Holy Family as your example.

There is a lot we can learn from the Holy Family.

Pope Benedict XVI said:

“The house of Nazareth is a school of prayer where we learn to listen, to meditate, to penetrate the deepest meaning of the manifestation of the Son of God, drawing our example from Mary, Joseph and Jesus.

The Holy Family is an icon of the domestic Church, which is called to pray together. The family is the first school of prayer where, from their infancy, children learn to perceive God thanks to the teaching and example of their parents.

An authentically Christian education cannot neglect the experience of prayer. If we do not learn to pray in the family, it will be difficult to fill this gap later.

I would, then, like to invite people to rediscover the beauty of praying together as a family, following the school of the Holy Family of Nazareth.”

Pope Benedict XVI

The enemy is focused on destroying the family, because to destroy the family is to destroy moral society. We must do all that we can to defend and protect the family and one way we can do this is by praying this Act of Consecration Prayer to the Holy Family.

If you would like to dedicate yourself and your family, pray the Act of Consecration to the Holy Family.

Act of Consecration Prayer to the Holy Family

“O Jesus, our most loving Saviour! Thou Who wast sent down from Heaven to enlighten the world by Thy teaching and example, and Who didst will to pass the greater part of Thy holy life in Nazareth, subject to Mary and Joseph, and thereby didst hallow the household which was to be the pattern for all Christian families, do Thou in Thy goodness receive our household which this day consecrates itself to Thee. Protect and guard us, strengthen us in Thy holy fear, establish in our hearts the peace and concord of Christian Charity, so that each one of us becoming like to the Divine model of Thy family, may be sharers of eternal joy.”

“O Mary, most loving Mother of Jesus Christ, our Mother, through thy love and mercy intercede, that Jesus receive this act of Consecration, and pour out upon us His graces and blessings.”

“O Joseph, most holy Guardian of Jesus and Mary, help us by thy prayers in all our necessities, both of body and soul; that together with the Blessed Virgin mary and thyself we shall praise and thank Jesus Christ, our Divine Redeemer.”
