When the disciples asked Jesus about divorce He said, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery”. (Mark 10:11-12)
The family is a precious gift from God. Family unity, understanding, respect and love will be reflected in the way children grow up and see God; it will mould their lifetime aspirations.
We all have a duty to pray for and protect children.
Lord Jesus, bless and protect parents and their families. Make their homes a place of peace, love and faith in You.
Mary, Mother of Jesus, pray for all mothers, fathers and their children throughout the world.
Prayer: Day-by-Day (St Richard of Chichester)
Praise be to Thee, O Lord Jesus Christ
For all the benefits you have given us,
for all the pains and insults which you have borne for us.
O most merciful Redeemer, Friend and Brother,
May, we see you more clearly,
Love you more dearly,
and follow You more nearly.
Day by day. Amen
