Cardinal Gérald C. Lacroix, Archbishop of Quebec, was invited by Pope Francis to participate in the Synod on Young People, Faith and Vocational Discernment that is being held in Rome from October 3rd to the 28th, 2018.
The Pius X Secular Institute rejoices with this nomination and invites all members and friends of our apostolic Family to pray for the success of this important meeting in the Church.
Prayer for the Synod
in journeying towards the Synod,
your Church turns her attention to all the young people in the world.
We pray that they might boldly
take charge of their lives,
aim for the most beautiful and profound things of life
and always keep their hearts unencumbered.
Accompanied by wise and generous guides,
help them respond to the call
you make to each of them,
to realize a proper plan of life
and achieve happiness.
Keep their hearts open to dreaming great dreams
and make them concerned for the good of others.
Like the Beloved Disciple,
may they stand at the foot of the Cross,
to receive your Mother as a gift from You.
May they be witnesses to your Resurrection
and be aware that you are at their side
as they joyously proclaim you as Lord.
