Contents Oratio post Missam ad Sanctam Familiam
Prayer to the Holy Family after Mass

From the postcommunion in the '62 Roman Missal for the feast of the Holy Family. A fitting after Mass or communion prayer.

QUOS caelestibus reficis sacramentis, fac, Domine Iesu, sanctae Familiae tuae exempla iugiter imitari: ut, in hora mortis nostrae, occurrente gloriosa Virgine Matre tua cum beato Ioseph, per te in aeterna tabernacula recipi mereamur: Qui vivis et regnas cum Deo Patre in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus per omnia saecula saeculorum. Amen. O LORD Jesus, make those whom Thou dost refresh with Thy heavenly sacrament to imitate continually the example of Thy Holy Family, and that being welcomed at the hour of our death by Thy glorious Virgin-Mother and Saint Joseph, we may be found worthy to be received by Thee into Thy everlasting dwelling: Thou who livest and reignest with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen.

Latin from the Postcommunion in '62 Missal for the feast of the Holy Family, tr. MWM
