Pope Francis: “If we want to speak of a synodal Church… we need content, means, and structures that can facilitate dialogue and interaction within the People of God, especially between priests and laity.”

Synod 2021 -2023

We stand before You, Holy Spirit,
as we gather together in Your name.
With You alone to guide us,
make Yourself at home in our hearts;
Teach us the way we must go
and how we are to pursue it.
