25th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME Yr. B
Prayer for the Synod on the Family
“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 scandalised 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 ever shall be, world without end. Amen.”
|“In imitation of our Master, we Christians are called to confront the poverty of our brothers and sisters, to touch it, to make it our own, and to take practical steps to alleviate it.” – Pope Francis|
The Holy Family were refugees
Rosary Special Intention: All refugees – that their suffering be eased; that they be welcomed, find a home, employment, security and peace; that Australia prepare well to receive the forthcoming 12,000… What about Corowa, including St Mary’s Parish? Do you have ideas for a combined churches response? Let Fr Paul know for next Ministers’ Association Meet.
