Second letter of Card. Mario Grech to those brothers and sisters called to a monastic and contemplative life, to initiate “an experience of world prayer to accompany the entire Synodal process”.

“There can be no discernment without individual prayer and prayer with other brother and sisters. Synodality requires both personal and community conversion which originates in and is sustained by prayer. Our prayer, which springs from silence and contemplation, can be of immense help to the entire Church.


Together with the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops and the International Union Superiors General, the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network launch a website to pray for a synodal Church, where all the people of God can share their prayers for the Synod of the Church. This will be also available on Click To Pray.
