Please pray for Our Holy Father and the Synodal process in our Archdiocese and worldwide, that the Holy Spirit will draw us more closely together in the truth and send us out as a light to the nations. May God bless you as we begin this journey together, confident that the Lord always works for good through those who love Him.
May the Blessed Virgin Mary, Queen of the Apostles
and Mother of the Church, intercede for us as we journey together
on the path that God sets before us. As in the Upper Room at Pentecost,
may her maternal care and intercession accompany us as we build up
our communion with one another and carry out our mission in the world.
With her, we say together as the People of God: 'Let it be with me
according to your word' (Lk 1:38)
