The Holy Father, Pope Francis has urged Marian shrines in all Arch/dioceses throughout the world to hold prayers on May 31st, the Feast of the Blessed Virgin Mary visiting Elizabeth. This is in preparation for the Ordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops scheduled for October 2023 in Rome.

The Assembly of the Synod of Bishops in October marks the third and final phase of the synodal process that the Church has been engaging in since 2021, following the Parishes/Dioceses and Continental levels. Let us ask for her maternal protection of the Church to guide this crucial stage of the Synod.

Despite not being a Marian Shrine, around 170 Parishioners of St Thomas, Kuantan gathered at the Grotto to pray the Rosary at 7.30 pm, followed by the Eucharistic celebration on the Feast of the Visitation, for the intention of the Holy Father.

As the month of May, which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary, draws to a close, let us follow the footsteps of Mary and Elizabeth by utilising every opportunity and blessing that comes our way to share the Good News and lead each other towards our Lord, Jesus.
