Dear Brothers and Sisters taking part in the Indigenous Delegation visiting Rome this week and meeting with the Pope, you are in our hearts. May this phase of the journey towards reconciliation and healing prove fruitful. We pray that the Delegates representing the Assembly of First Nations (AFN), the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK), the Métis National Council and the Catholic Bishops of Canada may participate in encounters that are most productive.
We will be following your press briefings, and we are grateful in advance for the news that you will be sharing with us (schedules and links to streamed events available here).
In solidarity with the Indigenous Delegation visiting the Holy See, Our Lady of Guadalupe Circle has put together two resources in French: a prayer card and a document entitled “Feu sacré et vague de prière pour la guérison et la réconciliation,” (meaning in English: ”Sacred Fire and Prayer Wave for Healing and Reconciliation.”) These resources are available on the Circle’s website at:
Let’s take advantage of this historic moment throughout our individual communities and join in prayer and solidarity with the men and women meeting with the Holy Father.
