Please continue to pray for the Synod, as dioceses around the world work to complete their ten-page synthesis reports.

Synodality is the way of being the Church today according to the will of God, in a dynamic of discerning and listening together to the voice of the Holy Spirit.

Here we are, oh Lord, available to You!

We are making our way with You and between us.

We wish to be truly synodal,

moving forward in harmony, spurred on by

the Holy Spirit.


Let us congregate ourselves, as local Churches,

in the unity of the one Church,

being the ecclesial “we” that celebrate

your Body and Blood and center on them.

Give us the grace of being the holy family that lives

the Gospel and is nourished by the Eucharist.

Let us live always, and especially this time,

in the communion with your Body and Blood;

so that, although there are many of us on this Synodal Path,

we may bear witness of being one single body

for we all share in one loaf, in You, Lord,

Bread of Life and Life in abundance.
