World Wide Synod of Bishops

Holy FamilyWe call your attention to the World Wide Synod of Bishops on the Family for the year 2015. While the organization of this synod is not perfect by any means, it is still amazingly incredible that it is happening at all.  The event  is a tremendous opening to the Spirit who will prompt  new and wonderful possibilities for the church to adapt to the critical needs of families for now and far into the future.  The Synod has already involved many of us who participated by answering the survey.  Now we can all be involved through using this prayer composed by Pope Francis for the occasion. 

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in you we contemplate
the splendor of true love,
to you we turn with trust.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
grant that our families too
may be places of communion and prayer,
authentic schools of the Gospel
and small domestic Churches.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
may families never again
experience violence, rejection and division:
may all who have been hurt or scandalized
find ready comfort and healing.

Holy Family of Nazareth,
may the approaching Synod of Bishops
make us once more mindful
of the sacredness and inviolability of the family,
and its beauty in God's plan.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
graciously hear our prayer.

PRAYER WRITTEN BY POPE FRANCIS
