Mgr Habert

« The Family of Louis and Zélie » was founded in Alençon on March 25, 2017 with the blessing of Monsignor Jacques Habert : « When Christians are canonized, they are given to us as an example and model. They are also given to us as intercessors. We know and we believe that Louis and Zélie pray for all families. By accepting to become their friends, you enter into this chain of prayer, into this fraternity with them. I encourage you in this journey. May the Lord bless the project of forming « the family of Louis and Zélie. » Mgr Jacques Habert, Bishop of Séez

Prayer of Consecration to the Holy Family

Holy Family of Nazareth, allow me to enter into your community of love; that I may immerse myself in the peace which is yours; that I may surrender myself to the Father’s loving Will in humility and faith.

Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph, help me to put Jesus in the first place, at the center of my life, like Louis and Zélie did.

Give me your joy. That under your patronage, I may bear witness to charity, that the reign of the love of Christ may be spread through me.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you. I consecrate myself to you from now on and forever; that under your protection, I may reach Heaven with all of my own and those entrusted to me.

Amen
