Prayer to the Holy Family for the 14th Synod of Bishops 
Holy Family of Nazareth, in you we contemplate the splendour of true love, to you we turn with trust and confidence.
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 be exposed to 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 ever 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 and intercede for us. Amen
