Pope Francis in prayer at MassThe prayer intentions of Pope Francis for July:

The general intention

That sports may always be occasions of human fraternity and growth.

The missionary intention

That the Holy Spirit may support the work of the laity who proclaim the Gospel in the poorest countries.

Having completed the month of June which is dedicated the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we begin July as the month dedicated to the Most Precious Blood of Christ. The deeper we move into summer the more I think it is fitting to recommit ourselves to a daily offering of the whole self to the Lord, leaving nothing out, returning to Him what we have received as a gift: life and freedom. Prayers for the daily offering are found on the Apostleship of Prayer website. Do you belong to the network of people making up the Apostleship of Prayer?
