Pope Francis' Prayer for the Synod of Bishops Meeting on the Family

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.

Brothers and sisters,

A prayer card with the above prayer will be in the pews this weekend with some extra's in the back of Church on the gift table and some upfront on the widow seals by the exits.  Please take one per family. These cards were donated to you by me for you to pray as a family for the upcoming Synod of Bishops on the family which will be held in October.  I would like to invite you to take one and pray it together!  


Reverend Keith M. Carroll
