Prayer in Honor of the Holy Family

The following is from First Vespers from the Roman Breviary.

VERBUM caro factum est, et habitavit in nobis, plenum gratiae et veritatis; de cuius plentitudine omnes nos accepimus, et gratiam pro gratia, alleluia. THE Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, full or grace and truth; of whose fullness we have all recieved, and grace for grace, alleluia.
V. Beati qui habitabant in domo tua, Domine. V. Blessed are they who dwell in Thy House.
R. In saecula saeculorum laudabunt te. R. They shall praise Thee forever and ever.
DOMINE Iesu Christe, qui Mariae et Ioseph subditus, domesticam vitam ineffabilibus virtutibus consecrasti: fac nos, utriusque auxilio, Familiae sanctae tuae exemplis instrui et consortium consequi sempiternum: Qui vivis et regnas in saecula saeculorum. Amen. LORD Jesus Christ, who, being made subject to Mary and Joseph, didst consecrate domestic life by Thine ineffable virtues; grant that we, with the assistance of both, may be taught by the example of Thy Holy Family and may attain to its everlasting fellowship. Who livest and reignest forever. Amen.
