Saint Josemaria Escriva Chaplet Prayers
On the Medal Pray
O God our loving Father, Creator of all things, You sent Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, into the home of Mary and Joseph forming the Holy Family of Nazareth; inspire us by their example to imitate their selfless charity in our family life. Through the intercession of Saint Josemaría, help our families to be united in the heart of Christ, enjoying a loving communion with each other, recognizing and upholding the sacredness of marriage, generously welcoming the gift of life, and valuing the inestimable gift of each family member.

Watch over and protect our family so that each member will be faithful to the Gospel and never stray from the path of holiness.
