Pray for the Synod

Just a reminder to pray for our Bishops and the Synod on the Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization.

Prayer to the Holy Family
Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in you we contemplate the splendour 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 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.
