Synod on the Family - Oct. 4 - Oct. 25, 2015

Thank you, Pope Francis!

“Love is shown by little things, by attention to small daily signs which make us feel at home. Faith grows when it is lived and shaped by love. That is why our families, our homes, are true domestic churches. They are the right place for faith to become life, and life grows in faith.” (Pope Francis—Homily at closing Holy Mass at World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia on Ben Franklin Parkway, September 27, 2015)

 

Pope's parting words: May our days together bear fruit that will last, generosity and care for others that will endure! Just as we have received so much from God –gifts freely given us, and not of our own making – so let us freely give to others in  return.

Prayer for the World Meeting of Families ~ Philadelphia 2015

 

God, and Father of us all,

in Jesus, your Son and our Savior,

you have made us

your sons and daughters

in the family of the Church.

May your grace and love

help our families

in every part of the world

be united to one another

in fidelity to the Gospel.

May the example of the Holy Family,

with the aid of your Holy Spirit,

guide all families,

especially those most troubled,

to be homes of communion and prayer

and to always seek your truth and live in

your love.

 

Through Christ our Lord, Amen.

 

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

Pray for us!
