Synod Journal
A Prayer for the Synod
for America

God and Father of all creation,
you sent your only son, Jesus Christ,
as the Savior of the world.

Through the intercession
of his mother, Mary,
you evangelized the Americas at Guadalupe,
planting in our soil seeds of faith
in Jesus, her Son.

Grant, we ask,
that through the Synod for America,
that same Word
may deepen its roots in us,
and bring forth in our hearts
the work of justice and the fruit of love.

Guide the thoughts and words
of those gathered in Rome
with John Paul, our Pope,
that through the Synod for America
they may lead your Church
into the new millennium,
the Jubilee of our Redemption.

Give them the strength
to trust in your presence,
the wisdom
to know your truth
and the love
to lead us to Christ your Son,
who lives and reigns
with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Prepared by the U.S. National Conference of Catholic Bishops Secretariat for the Liturgy
