On this date in 2018, I requested prayers for a friend, brother knight, Sir Knight, a mentor with great influence on my life, PSD, Supreme Director, SK Javier Martinez.
I do not live in the past, but I do not forget the past either. Javier believe in the power of the rosary and the holy family with their power of intersession with our Lord God. His motto was "Pray the Rosary"! 3 simple words of influence.
So, 5yrs later in honor of Javier today, I want to remind everyone, Pray the Rosary!
Continue to Rest in Peace my brother!

The Holy Family Prayer
JESUS, Son of God and Son of Mary, bless our family. Graciously inspire in us the unity, peace, and mutual love that you found in your own family in the little town of Nazareth.
MARY, Mother of Jesus and Our Mother, nourish our family with your faith and your love. Keep us close to your Son, Jesus, in all our sorrows and joys.
JOSEPH, Foster-father to Jesus, guardian and spouse of Mary, keep our family safe from harm. Help us in all times of discouragement or anxiety.
HOLY FAMILY OF NAZARETH, make our family one with you. Help us to be instruments of peace. Grant that love, strengthened by grace, may prove mightier than all the weaknesses and trials through which our families sometimes pass. May we always have God at the center of our hearts and homes until we are all one family, happy and at peace in our true home with you. Amen.
