Synod Bishops on the family

Josephine Badali, CND

The Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod Bishops on the family takes place in Rome from October 5 to 19. The theme of this synod is The pastoral challenges of the family in the context of evangelization.

Pope Francis has invited all of us in the universal Church to unite in prayer for this significant event and the following prayer has been offered to us. Let us pray in communion with the Bishops at the synod and with all people of good will.


Prayer to the Holy 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.
