Prayer Corner

This last week was Valentines – and perhaps more importantly it was also National Marriage Week. This is an opportunity “to celebrate the gift and blessing of marriage,” said the chairman of the Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

“Promoting and strengthening marriage remains a pastoral priority of our Conference,” wrote Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Philadelphia, in a letter to his brother bishops. “Marriage, both as a natural institution and as a Christian sacrament, is an irreplaceable good for society and all people.”

Our Prayer this week is to celebrate married Couples

Prayer for Married Couples
Marriage: Love and Life in the Divine Plan, Leaders’ Guide (Washington, DC: USCCB, 2010), 49

Almighty and eternal God,
You blessed the union of married couples
so that they might reflect the union of Christ with his Church:
look with kindness on them.
Renew their marriage covenant,
increase our love in them,
and strengthen their bond of peace
so that, with their children,
they may always rejoice in the gift of your blessing.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
