For the Crusade of the Family Rosary

O Queen of the most holy Rosary:
with hearts full of confidence we earnestly beseech you
to bless the Crusade of the Family Rosary.
From you came the grace to begin it.
From you must come the grace to win souls to it.
We beg you to bless this Crusade
so that from every home the incense of this prayer will daily rise before you,
O admirable Mother.

O Queen of Homes:
by the power of the Rosary we beseech you to embrace all the members of our family
in the love of your Immaculate Heart.
May you abide with us and we with you,
praying to you while your pray for us.
May you preside in our homes as once you did at Nazareth with Jesus and Joseph,
filling them with the holiness of your presence and inspiration.

O Queen of Peace:
it is you who have placed the Rosary in our hands.
It is you who bid us to recite it daily.
By the power of the Family Rosary we beseech you to obtain peace for us
--peace within our hears, our homes, our country,
and throughout the world.
Through the daily recitation of the Family rosary
we beg you to keep sin from our souls, enmities from our hearts,
and war from our shores.
By the graces received from the devotion of the Family Rosary
we pray to be made helpful to one another in following the paths of virtue
so that we may be found worthy to be called children of your family, children of your home.
