Prayers for the Family is a novena and prayer booklet for today’s Catholic family, featuring highlights from Pope Francis' teachings on the family.
The booklet includes many new prayers for a variety of family needs, a novena with nine days of specific intentions related to family life, and a new and unique “Litany of the Family” that calls for the intercession of holy spouses and parents throughout salvation history, from Abraham and Sarah to Louis and Zelie Martin.
Becoming “like us in all things but sin,” it is no coincidence that when Jesus came to live among us on the Earth, he was born into a family of his own.
At a time when the beauty of this ancient institution is misunderstood and under attack, Steubenville Press offers this prayer booklet, inspired by the teachings and example of Pope Francis, to illuminate, enrich, protect, and celebrate the family.
The comforting and timely prayers within this booklet can bring healing and holiness to your family life.
Following the form and beauty of Understanding Mary Undoer of Knots, Steubenville Press’ first novena booklet, Prayers for the Family is sure to touch hearts and inspire prayer in all readers.

Praying these prayers with Pope Francis brings one closer to the Vic of Christ
