Embracing life as it comes (A Prayer for the Synod)
Jesus, we see you in the Gospels
welcoming everyone who was close to you,
like the man with evil spirits or the man with the withered hand.
We see You walking with the disciples of Emmaus
or giving comfort to the widow
who has lost her only child.
You taught us to embrace life as it comes,
to focus on people,
no matter who they are or what they have experienced.
Give us your grace and your light
to imprint “your style” in the Church,
to understand the others as they are
to understand them from the depths of their hearts
beyond their words and actions.
May we be an open-hearted Church,
a Church that is receptive and walks with others.
