VATICAN CHILD ABUSE SUMMIT
21-24 February 2019
This week 190 church leaders are meeting in Rome in the face of the emerging world-wide crisis of the sexual abuse of children in the Catholic Church. Details including the program and speakers is available on the Vatican’s dedicated forum website.
Pray and Light a Candle
“Pray and Light a Candle" is a project co-ordinated by Catholics Speak Out, Concerned Catholics and the Christian Meditation Community members of the Australian Catholic Coalition for Church Renewal to coincide with the Rome Summit 21-24 February.
We are calling for a national campaign of silent prayer between 21-24 February 2019 for Pope Francis and our bishops to call on the Holy Spirit to strengthen their discernment and courage for radical decision making during this summit on child abuse and protection and church reform.
We have prepared this prayer sheet to be used in meditation pdf.
