A Family Meeting & a Family Prayer Print E-mail
School News - Catholic Life
Written by Fr Martin   

IncreaseThis Sunday, 5 October, Catholic Bishops from around the world will gather at the Vatican for a Synod.

This Synod has been called to discuss the many challenges facing families in the twenty-first century.

Pope Francis has asked that every member of the Church, that is every member of God’s family, prays for God’s blessing on this special Synod.

The last time there was a Synod especially for family life was in 1980.  This year’s Synod will be attended by over 150 bishops and will last until Sunday 19 October.

At home, in our families, let us pray for those meeting in the Synod.  Here is the prayer written by Pope Francis:


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 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.  Amen.
