Synod underway

Natl. Catholic REGISTER has suggested going to this website to seek from among the list of participants someone to pray over. I chose the following:

Mrs. Penny and Mr. Ishwar Bajaj, Hindu-Christian couple from the diocese of Mumbai, India
Fr. Francois-Xavier Dumortier, S.J., Magnificent Rector of the Pontifical Gregorian University
Bishop Jean-Marie Lovey, C.R.B., of Sion, Sitten, Switzerland
Bishop John Baptist Lee Keh-Mien of Hsinchu, China

When you pray, use this one composed by the Holy Father for the occasion:

Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in you we contemplate
the splendor of true love,
to you we turn with trust.
Holy Family of Nazareth,
grant that our families too
may be places of communion and prayer,
authentic schools of the Gospel
and small domestic Churches.
Holy Family of Nazareth,
may families never again
experience violence, rejection and division:
may all who have been hurt or scandalized
find ready comfort and healing.
Holy Family of Nazareth,
may the Synod of Bishops
make us once more mindful
of the sacredness and inviolability of the family,
and its beauty in God's plan.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
graciously hear our prayer. Amen.
