Pope Francis' Prayer to the Holy Family

This morning I found this on Twitter and thought I would share it with you. For the Feast of the Holy Family, Pope Francis invited all Catholics to pray for families as we prepare for the next Synod of Bishops which will focus on family. Here is the prayer:


Jesus, Mary and Joseph,in you we contemplatethe splendor of true love,to you we turn with trust.

Holy Family of Nazareth,grant that our families toomay be places of communion and prayer,authentic schools of the Gospeland small domestic Churches.

Holy Family of Nazareth,may families never again experience violence, rejection and division:may all who have been hurt or scandalizedfind ready comfort and healing.

Holy Family of Nazareth,may the approaching Synod of Bishopsmake 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.

Until next time,
