Blessed Trinity, I beg You, help me become a faithful and sacrificial husband and father for my bride and children that they may come to know, love and serve You and to build Your Holy Catholic Church, Lord, hear my prayer.

That I build a deep and abiding unity with my bride through daily prayer with her, by making many sacrifices to help and bless her, by receiving and giving loving correction so we might grow in holiness, and by pursuing beautiful perpetual courtship with her…

That I establish and maintain just authority and order in my family and build a robust Catholic culture in our home, and grow in many good and holy Catholic friendships with other families…

That I unceasingly lead my family into a deeper union with You through daily family prayer, frequent reception of the Sacraments, and by building a loving devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, and all the Saints and Angels…

That I take up my duty to be the primary evangelist and catechist of my family by personally witnessing what You have done in my life, by systematically teaching each member of my family the Catholic faith, that I teach my family how to battle vice and build virtue, by ensuring my children participate in learning the faith in our parish [and Catholic school], and by demonstrating charity through the frequent practice of the Corporal Works of Mercy…

That I protect and defend my family spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically, by being vigilant against the attacks of Satan and all evil attacks, by ensuring my family is physically safe, by limiting and monitoring all media which so corrupts souls, and by guarding my family against those who are a bad influence…

That I provide for the material needs of my family by sacrificing my personal desires and working hard, by balancing my career and family duties so I never neglect my family, by teaching my family to be moderate and frugal in consumption and by being a good steward of the blessing You have bestowed on us…

That I cultivate and build the talents of our children so they may grow to serve You and Your Holy Catholic Church by shepherding my sons to mature into Catholic manhood, by shepherding my daughters to mature into Catholic womanhood, by guiding each child to discern a religious vocation and also prepare them to be productive in the world…

Blessed Trinity, I beg for the wisdom and strength to carry out my duties as a Catholic husband and father so that You might be pleased with me and might say at my Judgment, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Amen.
