Moment of Prayer (May 31, 2023)
Synod Moment of Prayer
When is the moment of prayer?
The General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops has invited the Church throughout the world to a “moment of prayer” for the Synod on Wednesday, May 31,2023, the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Why a moment of prayer?
The purpose of this moment of prayer is threefold:
• To pray for the Synodal Process and to place the work of the General Assembly in October under the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church
• To make the People of God aware of the importance of the Synodal Process and to encourage all to accompany this process with prayer
• To engage lay, religious, and clergy in prayer for the Synod
