Prayer to the Holy Family for the Synod
An Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops is scheduled to take place October 5-19 to treat the topic: The Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization. The Holy Father has written the following prayer and has asked us to pray it in the days leading up to and during the Synod.
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.
