Book of the Families Consecrated to the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, Joseph:

Saint Joseph’s Concordance Collection is pleased to present a new transcription of a vintage text for consecration to the Holy Family from Montreal, Quebec in Canada. Family prayers are also contained herein from a variety of sources.  

Summary of the Rules of the Association

1. What are the indispensable conditions of membership in the Association of the Holy Family?

a. To be enrolled in the Association by giving the name of the head of the family to the pastor of the Congregation.

b. To have a picture of the Holy Family in one’s house. c. To say daily some prayer before that picture.

2. Must the prayer of consecration be said every day?

               The prayer “O most loving Jesus,” etc. (page 11), is designed by the Holy Father to be said every day. Nevertheless its omission does not deprive of membership.

3. May the prayers of the Association be said publicly in the church?

               Yes, if they are approved by the Ordinary and said before a picture of the Holy Family.

4.  Do the rules of the Association of the Holy Family bind under pain of mortal sin?

               No, but the neglect of their observance deprives of the indulgences to be gained by observing them.

5. May the inmates of seminaries and colleges, and the members of religious communities be enrolled?

               Yes, it was so decided by the S. C. of Rites, February 13, 1892.

Brief

Enriching with indulgences the universal association of the Holy Family.

Leo XIII; Pope,

For a Perpetual Memorial.

            When it lately fell to our lot to sanction and approve, by Apostolic letters, the new Constitution of the Association of the Holy Family, We thought it sufficient, in the exercise of our duty and office, to bestow upon the same Association our highest praise, and to recommend it most earnestly to all Christian families.

            Our purpose in thus praising and commending it was that the Christian flock, whose eternal salvation has been entrusted to us, should, by the example of the Holy Family and at our invitation be duly encouraged in the practice of Christian virtue. For Christian virtue in truth is of such strength and efficacy that in its observance for the most part lies as well the remedy of present evils as the warding off of dangers to come. For men are greatly influenced by example, and the better and holier the person is, the more will men judge his example worthy of imitation.

            Therefore, it is not to be wondered at that We, whose sole wish and desire is to be able, by encouraging the practice of Christian virtue everywhere, to afford a remedy to present evils and to avoid impending ones, should show an especial good will and interest toward the Association of the Holy Family, which holds up for the imitation of its

members the sanctity of the Holy Family itself. For all who are enrolled in this Association, beholding the exalted virtues of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, must needs reproduce in some way these self-same virtues and endeavor to become better by imitating them. Therefore may this Pious Association live and thrive; may it increase in members and good works; may it grow and extend its influence day by day! Because so long as this Association flourishes, faith and piety and every Christian virtue will blossom again in the family. But as men are wont to be influenced by the hope of reward, We offer as an inducement what lies in Our power to bestow, a reward not frail or perishable, but the recompense of things spiritual.

            Moreover, the associates may look forward to a still greater reward from Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, to whose service they have devoted themselves, who will be propitious to their clients in the course of this life, and will also grant that the sweet and holy names of Jesus and Mary may linger upon their dying lips.

            Therefore that this may tend to what is good and holy. And may rebound to God’s glory and the salvation of souls, We, by our Apostolic Authority, and by these presents, wish and ordain that each and every member of the Association of the Holy Family, now and for future time, be free to use the remission of temporal punishments known as indulgences, and the privileges that are record below.

An Act of Consecration

To Be Recited by Christian Families Who Consecrate Themselves to the Holy Family.

            “O Jesus, our most loving Saviour, Thou Who wast sent down from heaven to enlighten the world by Thy teaching and example, and Who didst will to pass the greater part of Thy holy life in lowliness at Thy home in Nazareth, subject to Mary and Joseph, and thereby didst hallow the household which was to be the pattern for all Christian families, do Thou in Thy goodness receive our household, which this day consecrates itself to Thee; protect and guard us, strengthen us in Thy holy fear, establish in our hearts the peace and concord of Christian charity, so that each one of us, becoming like to the Divine Model of Thy Family, may be sharer of eternal joy.”

            “O Mary, most loving Mother of Jesus Christ, our Mother, through thy love and mercy intercede that Jesus receive this act of consecration, and pour out upon us His graces and blessings.”

            “O Joseph, most holy Guardian of Jesus and Mary, help us by thy prayers in all our necessities both of body and soul, that, together with the Blessed Virgin Mary and thyself, we shall praise and thank Christ Jesus, our divine Redeemer.”

            We ordain that each of the above decrees set forth above remain firm and approved and confirmed forever, Constitutions, Apostolic Regulations, and all things whatever to the contrary notwithstanding.

            Given in St. Peter’s, at Rome, under the ring of the Fisherman, the twentieth day of June, 1892, the fifteenth year of our pontificate.

                                                S. Card. Vannutelli.  

Abstract of the Statutes

Of the Universal Pious Association of Families Consecrated to the Holy Family of Nazareth.

            1. The scope of the Pious Association is that Christian families be consecrated to the Holy Family of Nazareth, placing it before themselves for veneration and imitation, offering up in its honour every day prayers before its image, and practicing in their lives the sublime virtues which the Holy Family offered for imitation to every grade of society, especially to the working class.

            2. The Pious Associatior has its central seat in Rome, and is under the protection of the Cardinal Vicar pro temp. of His Holiness the Pope.

            3. The Ordinary of each diocese or apostolic vicariate, the better to promote the Pious Association among the faithful, may make use of an ecclesiastic of his choice, with the title of Diocesan Director.

            4. The Diocesan Directors will correspond with the parish-priests, to whom alone is confided the enrollment of families in their respective parishes. In the month of May each year the parish-priests will communicate to the Diocesan Directors, and these, under the direction of the Ordinary, will forward to the central seat in Rome the number of families enrolled in the Pious Association during the year.

            5. The consecration of families will be performed according to the formula approved and prescribed by His Holiness Leo XIII. The consecration may be performed by each family separately at home, or by many families united in the parish-church in the presence of the parish-priest or his delegate.

            6. The pictures of the Holy Family ought to be in the home of every family enrolled. The members of the family shall offer up at least once a day, if possible in the evening, prayers in common, in presence of this picture. The formula of prayers approved by our Holy Father Leo XIII, is recommended especially for that purpose; as well as the frequent use of the three well-known ejaculations:

            Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I offer you my heart and soul.

            Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, assist me in my last agony.

            Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, may I breathe out my soul in peace with you.

(For each recital of the ablve three ejaculations, 300 days’ Indulgence; and for the recital of any one of them, 100 days. – Pius PP. VII., 28 April, 1807.

General Convocation

            The director may appoint a day as the Patron-feast of the Association.

            On this day the members of the Association are invited to approach the Holy Table. On the same day they should hold an assembly for the purpose of renewing their promise of fidelity to the evening prayer at the feet of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

            Families not yet enrolled should afford this opportunity to join the Association.

The Special Mark

Or Picture of the Association of the Holy Family.

            Every society should have its special mark as well as its purpose.

            The picture of the Holy Family, League of eternal union, with its texts and its 42 historical medallions, is the special stamp of the Association.

EXPLANATION

            The picture contains the principal design of the Holy Family, which forms the back-ground of the picture, and enchased with 42 richly decorated medallions. The texts which are printed under each medallion, can be explained and developed with great advantage for the instruction of the families. A good mother will not fail to explain them to her dear children. The medallions are divided into 3 classes, each of which has its place and its meaning. We can easily recognize the operations of God the Father Creator, of God the Son the Redeemer, and of the Holy Ghost the divine Promoter of catholic works.

            The first series contains the 15 medallions placed at the head of the picture and they recall to our mind the religious history of the world, from the creation to the end of time.

            The 2nd series numbers the 24 ones at both side of the picture and recalls the history of the Holy Family, viz: the 12 at the left, the mysteries of the Incarnation and the hidden life, from the nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary until the death of St. Joseph; the 12 at the right, represent the public life of Jesus and the Redemption, from the death of St. Joseph to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

            The 3rd series is composed of 5 medallions placed under the middle picture and represents the divers categories: fathers, mothers of families, young men, girls, and children.

Night Prayers

            † In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

            Placing ourselves in the presence of God, let us adore Him.

            I adore Thee, O my God, with the reverence with which the presence of Thy Sovereign Majesty inspires me; I believe in Thee because Thou art truth itself; I hope in Thee because Thou are infinitely good; I love Thee with my whole heart because Thou are supremely worthy to be loved; and for the love of Thee I love my neighbour as myself.

            Let us give thanks to God for the benefits we have received at His hands.

            What thanks shall I render Thee, O my God, for all the loving-kindness that Thou hast bestowed upon me? Thou has thought of me from all eternity: Thou has formed me out of nothing; Thou hast given Thy life to redeem me, and Thou continues to heap upon me every day favours without number. Alas!

Lord, what acknowledgment can I make for so many favours? Unite with me, ye blessed Spirits, in praising the God of mercy, who ceaseth not to do good to the most unworthy of His creatures.

            Let us beg of God to make known our sins to us.

            O Holy Ghost, eternal source of light, remove my darkness and dispel those shades that hide from me the filth and enormity of my offences. Show me, I beseech Thee, the sins I have this day committed, in thought, word and action. Grant me a feeling sense of them, that I may detest them all from the bottom of my hear, and dread nothing so much as ever to commit them hereafter.

            Let us examine our conscience on the sins committed against God, our neighbour, and ourselves. (A moment of silence to examine the faults of this day)

            Behold me, O Lord, overwhelmed with confusion, and penetrated with grief at the sight of my iniquities. I am not worthy to be called Thy child, nor even to be reckoned among Thy servants, because I have repaid thy goodness with malice, and Thy patience with ingratitude. I have offended Thee who are so good, so amiable, and so worthy of my love. Yet, Lord, I am the work of Thy hands, ransomed with the precious blood of Thy own Son, who died for my salvation. Through his infinite merits I implore forgiveness. Have pity on me, and spare me for His sake. Turn away Thy face from my sins, and blot out my iniquities. I am heartily sorry for them, because they are offensive to Thee, and I shall continue to repent sincerely of them, to the very hour of my death.

            Let us steadfastly purpose to sin no more.

            How I wish, O my God, that I had never offended Thee! But since I have been so unhappy as to do what is displeasing in Thy sight, I will testify my sorrow for it by a behaviour altogether different from what I have hitherto maintained. Henceforward, I renounce all sin, and the occasion of sin; above all, of that into which I have the misfortune so frequently to relapse. And if Thou wilt vouchsafe me Thy grace faithfully to fulfil my duties, and nothing shall ever be able to prevent me from doing Thy will.

            Our Father, Who are in heaven, hallowed be Thy name: Thy Kingdom come: Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread: and forgive us out trespasses as we forgive them who trespass against us: and lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. Amen.

            Hail, Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us, sinners, now, and in the hour of our death. Amen.

            I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell, the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy ghost, the Holy Catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting Amen.

            I confess to Almighty God, to blessed Mary, every a Virgin, to blessed Michael the archangel, to blessed John the Baptist, to the holy apostles Peter and Paul, to all the Saints, (and to you, Father,) that I have sinned exceedingly in thought, word, and deed, through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault. Therefore I beseech the blessed Mary, ever a Virgin, the blessed Michael the archangel, the blessed John the Baptist, the holy apostles Peter and Paul, all the Saints (and you, Father,) to pray to the Lord our God for me.

            May the Almighty God have mercy on me, and forgive me my sins, and bring me to everlasting life. Amen.

            May the Almighty and merciful Lord give me pardon, absolution and remission of all my sins. Amen.

—————–

            Bless, O Lord, the repose I am about to take in order to repair my strength, so that I may be the better able to serve Thee, and, though, O Holy Virgin, Mother of God, and, after Him my only hope; My Guardian Angel, and all ye Saints, my Patrons, intercede for me this night and all the remainder of my life, but more especially at the hour of my death. Amen.

—————–

            Pour down They blessing, O Lord, upon Thy Church; upon our brethren our parents, friends, and benefactors; also upon our enemies; protect those whom Thou hast given us for masters, as well spiritual as temporal; assist the poor and prisoners, the afflicted and those who are travelling; extend also Thy aid to the sick, and to all those who are in their agony; convert all heretics and unbelievers.

            O God of goodness and mercy! Have pity on

the suffering Souls in purgatory, put an end to their

pains, and grant to those, for whom we are more

particularly bound to pray, eternal rest and

happiness. Amen.

A Prayer to be Said Every Day Before a Picture of the Holy Family.

            “O most loving Jesus, Who didst hallow by Thy surpassing virtues and the example of Thy home-life the household. Thou didst choose to live in whilst upon earth, mercifully look down upon this family, whose members, humbly prostrate before Thee, implore Thy protection. Remember that we are Thine, bound and consecrate to Thee by a special devotion. Protect us in Thy mercy, deliver us from danger, help us in our necessities, and impart to us strength to persevere always in the imitation of Thy Holy Family, so that, by serving Thee and loving Thee faithfully during this mortal life, we may at length given Thee eternal praise in heaven.

            O Mary, dearest Mother, we implore thy assistance, knowing that thy divine Son will hearken to thy petitions.

            And thou, Most glorious Patriarch, St. Joseph, help us with they powerful patronage, and place our petitions in Mary’s hands, that she may offer them to Jesus Christ. (300 days’ ind., each time.)

            Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, I offer you my heart and soul. (100 days’ ind.)

            Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, assist me in my last agony. (100 days’ ind.)

            Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, may I breathe out my soul in peace with you. (100 days’ ind.)

            Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, enlighten us, aid us, and save us. Amen. (200 days; ind., once a day.)

Prayer of Saint Bernard.

            Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known, that any one who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, and sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired with this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins, my mother. To thee I come: before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy merch hear and answer me. Amen. (300 days’ ind. Plenary in the month.)

Prayer to St. Joseph,

To be offered throughout the catholic world during the month of October.

            We fly to thee, O Blessed Joseph, in our tribulations, and imploring the aid of thy most holy Spouse, confidently invoke thy patronage also. By that charity which united thee with the Immaculate Virgin, Mother of God, and by the fatherly love with which thou didst embrace the Infant Jesus, we humbly beseech thee to look benignly on the inheritance which Jesus Christ acquired by His Blood, and help us in our necessity by their power and aid.

            Protect, O most provident Guardian of the Holy Family the elect children of Jesus Christ; ward off from us, O most loving Father, all pestilence of errors and depravity; be propitious to us from heaven, O most powerful Protector, in this our struggle with the power of darkness; and as thou didst once rescue the child Jesus from the greatest peril to His life, so now defend the Holy Church of God from the snares of the enemy and all adversity; and shield each one of us with they perpetual patronage, that imitating thy example, and supported by the aid, we may be enabled to live a holy life die piously, and attain everlasting bliss in heaven. Amen. Pope Leo XIII. (Indulgence of 7 years and 7 Quarantines)

De Profundis.

            Ps. 129. De profundis clamavi ad te Domine: * Domine, exaudi vocem mean.

            Fiant aures tuae intendentes * in vocem deprecationis meae.

            Si iniquitates observaveris, Domine, * Domine, quis sustinebit?

            Quia apud te propitiation est, * et propter legem tuam sustinui te, Domine.

            Sustinuit anuma mea in verbo ejus, * speravit anima mea in Domino.

            A custodia matutina usque ad noctem, * speret Israel in Domino.

            Quia apud Dominum misericordia, * et copiosa apud eum redemption.

            Et ipse redimet Israel * ex omnibus iniquitatibus ejus.

            V. Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine,
