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 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 …


Louis & Zelie Martin

Sts Zelie and Louis Martin

Parents of Saint Therese Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin, will be canonised in Rome today, 18th October 2015.

Fr. Sangalli, who supported the cause for their canonization said, “Louis and Zélie showed by their lives that conjugal love is an instrument of holiness, a way to holiness consummated by the two persons together.”

He said this aspect today is “the most important aspect to value in the family. There is an enormous need for a simple spirituality lived out in daily life.”

Zelie & Louis lost 4 children in infancy/childbirth before raising 5 girls, all of whom joined religious life. The youngest was St Therese. A second of their daughters is also being proposed for canonisation.

The power of their faith, love, and good example as a couple make us confident to call on their help for our families:

   Saints Louis & Zelie, pray for us.
