Vatican City, 20 October, 2021 / 1:00 pm (ACI Africa).
The Vatican on Tuesday launched a website and smartphone app to help Catholics pray for the success of the two-year process culminating in the 2023 synod on synodality.
At prayforthesynod.va, Catholics can find information in English, Spanish, and other languages about how to support the synod through prayer.
“This website, together with the app Click To Pray, aims to accompany the synodal way for prayer,” the website says on its “About us” page.
“In order to ‘walk together’ and listen to the Holy Spirit we need to pray. There can be no synodal way without personal and community prayer. Prayer prepares our hearts to listen carefully to others and helps us to discern the action of the Holy Spirit throughout the world.”
One way the Vatican has suggested that Catholics and their communities can pray for the synod is by reciting a prayer to the Holy Spirit, a simplified version of the “Adsumus, Sancte Spiritus.”
