PRAYER: MAY THE MEANING OF MARRIAGE BE PROCLAIMED WITH EVER GREATER LOVE

“On every first Friday to commit as a day of fasting, penance and prayer (e.g. Rosary, Stations of the Cross, Adoration and 40 hours in October) for the intentions of the Universal Church and the Holy Father Pope Francis.

Let us pray

Father in Heaven, you have ordered the Sacrament of Marriage and the gift of life as an image of your Divine Life with the Son in the Holy Spirit. We pray that the teaching of the Church on the true meaning of marriage and human sexuality may be proclaimed with ever greater love, courage and hope in our world and be received in deep gratitude. Amen.

We ask for the intercession of all the Saints in Heaven. Our Lady, Mother of Nazareth – pray for us. Saint Joseph – pray for us. Saint Thomas More – pray for us. St Therese of Lisieux – pray for us. Blessed Louis and Zelie Martin – pray for us.”

INTERNATIONAL GATHERING OF PRIESTS PLEDGE THEIR FIDELITY TO CHURCH TEACHING

“Unwavering fidelity”

“An international gathering of English I speaking clergy has issued a statement pledging its ‘unwavering fidelity’ to the traditional doctrines of the Church teaching on marriage and sexuality ahead of the family synod.

The Confraternity of Catholic Clergy, whose members came from America, Britain, Australia and Ireland, voted unanimously on a statement which said: ‘The fathers pledge their unwavering fidelity to the traditional doctrines regarding marriage and the true meaning of human sexuality as proclaimed in the Word of God and set out clearly in the Church’s Ordinary and Universal Magisterium.’

‘Importance of upholding the Church’s traditional discipline regarding the reception of the sacraments’

The British branch of the confraternity was established following Benedict XVI’s Year for Priests in 2010 with the aim of promoting ‘fidelity to Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, the Magisterium, the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Holy Father’.

The confraternity statement concluded by affirming the ‘importance of upholding the Church’s traditional discipline regarding the reception of the sacraments’, adding that ‘doctrine and practice must remain firmly and inseparably in harmony.'”
