Prayer of a parent to St. John, Apostle for one’s children[1]

St. John, please intercede with the Lord that my children … and their mother(/father) … to search for Christ the Lord. May they meet him and have the generosity to follow him when he calls and be faithful as you were.

Teach them and me to love and respect the pope, and to treat Mary, Mother of God and our Mother, with ever more tender love, filial affection, and with ever more confidence and trust, Amen.
