Diocesan Synodal Pathway

The logo for the Dublin Archdiocesan Synodal Path is inspired by the phrase ‘we are all in the same boat’

  • The lighthouse represents the guiding light of the Holy Spirit who guides us on our way.
  • The boat represents the Church, the People of God journeying together.
  • The water represent the waters of baptism and the equality of all the baptised.

Every session of the Second Vatical Council began with the prayer Adsumus Sancte Spiritus, the first word of the original Latin, meaning, “We stand before You, Holy Spirit,” which has been historically used at Councils, Synods and other Church gatherings for hundreds of years, and is attributed to Saint Isidore of Seville (c. 560 – 4 April 636). As we embrace this Synodal Process, this prayer invites the Holy Spirit to be at work in us so that we may be a community and a people of grace. For the Synodal Pathway from 2021 to 2023, we will use this prayer.

Prayer for the Synod:

Adsumus Sancte Spiritus

We stand before You, Holy Spirit,

as we gather together in You name.

With You alone to guide us,

make Yourself at home in our hearts;

Teach us the way we must go

and how we are to pursue it.

We are weak and sinful;

do not let us promote disorder.

Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path

nor partiality influence our actions.

Let us find in You our unity

so that we may journey together to eternal life

and not stray from the way of the truth

and what is right.

All this we ask of You,

who are at work in every place and time,

in the communion of the Father and the Son,

forever and ever.
