Lord, we ask You to bless all grandparents and keep them in Your care. Bless them with peace, health and healing. Reward them for their faith and fidelity, for their work and goodness, for their love and thoughtfulness, for their gifts and prayers. Give them a long and happy life. May the advancing of years come to them in the company of family and friends. We ask You to unite them again in the kingdom of Your Love where parting will be no more. And may Almighty God bless the grandparents gathered here in the holy name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We ask all this through Christ our Lord. AMEN.
-Father Michael Briese
