Prayer for the Synod on the Family


4-25th October 2015

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 of the family,
and its beauty in God’s plan.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, graciously hear our
prayer. Amen.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy
Spirit: As it was in the beginning, is now and every shall
be, world without end.
