THE SPECIAL ASSEMBLY
OF THE SYNOD OF BISHOPS
in your desire to communicate eternal life,
you sent Jesus your
Son to bring all people into your kingdom.
the Church in Africa prepares to answer the call to be witness
Gospel through the Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops,
implore you, to strengthen your people for their mission to evangelise all
the nations of the continent.
there is ignorance, give knowledge;
where there is fear, courage;
where there is indifference, love;
where there is oppression, justice;
where there is conflict, peace.
the Holy Spirit guide us in forming and living our pastoral plan to make
disciples of all the peoples of Africa teaching them to know and
all that you have commanded. Through Christ our Lord.
