Galatians 3: 26-29

Each one of you is a child of God because of your faith in Christ Jesus. All of you who have been baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with him. There does not exist among you Jew or Greek, slave or free, male or female. All are one in Christ Jesus. Further, if you belong to Christ you are descendants of Abraham, which means you inherit all that was promised.

One in Christ Jesus

The 2014 Extraordinary Synod on the Family is meeting these days at the Vatican. Its work prepares for the 2015 “Ordinary” Synod on the Family. As bishops, theologians, and lay experts from around the globe meet in Rome, we stand with them in awareness and prayer. Paul’s words to the Galatians come to mind as the world’s  faces and backgrounds and viewpoints encounter each other in the Synod Hall’s deliberations. Under Pope Francis’ leadership, these good people bring their wisdom and experience to the issues of this Church-wide family Synod. With them we are all truly “one in Christ Jesus.”

People whose lives and faith were shaped by the Second Vatican Council speak of the incredible energy and hope that came from faith-filled conversations across nations and cultures and social divides. It was a profound experience of the Church’s global mission come alive within that assembly. These current two years of the Synod on the Family offer a similar opportunity to stretch our horizons and imaginations, discovering in the process how the Holy Spirit lives and moves within each of our own families, and certainly within the worldwide family of the Church.

Take a moment today to “google” some news about the Synod. Take some time to pray that God’s powerful grace is present within its members and deliberations. Ask God in a special way to bless your own family and its growth in the Lord’s good grace.

Prayer

Prayer of Pope Francis for the Synod

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendor 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 scandalized find ready comfort and healing.

Holy Family of Nazareth, may this worldwide Synod on the Family make us 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.
