month of the holy family

February is dedicated to the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the models of virtue to all Christian households. It started being recognized in the 17th century and the Association of the Holy Family was founded in Montreal in 1663. This spread rapidly and Pope Leo XIII approved the feast in 1893.

Let Us Pray: Consecration of the Family to the Holy Family (from Roman Missal)

Lord Jesus Christ, Who, being made subject to Mary and Joseph, hallowed domestic life by Your ineffable virtues; grant that we, with the assistance of both, may be taught by the example of Your holy Family and may attain to its everlasting fellowship; Who lives and reigns world without end. Amen
