August prayer intentions of the Pope

For August, the intention we are asked to pray for in communion with the Roman Pontiff is:

That any far-reaching decisions of economists and politicians may protect the family as one of the treasures of humanity.

Pope Francis’ July 2018 prayer intention

Let us join our prayer with that of the Pope’s for this intention:

That priests, who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work, may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord and in their friendship with their brother priests.

Prayers for all of our priests, in particular our pastors and those who serve as our spiritual fathers and priest-friends.

Sacred Heart and Pope’s prayer intention for June 2018

Today, as we begin the month of June, a month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we think of, we relish in, we abide in the great love Our Lord has for us. Having just finished the Paschal Cycle of our Faith, here is another opportunity to move more deeply into a familiarity with Jesus Christ.

“In biblical language, “heart” indicates the centre of the person where his sentiments and intentions dwell. In the Heart of the Redeemer we adore God’s love for humanity, his will for universal salvation, his infinite mercy. Practising devotion to the Sacred Heart of Christ therefore means adoring that Heart which, after having loved us to the end, was pierced by a spear and from high on the Cross poured out blood and water, an inexhaustible source of new life” (Benedict XVI, Angelus 5 June 2005).

Also in June, we have this prayer intention of Pope Francis: “That social networks may work towards that inclusiveness which respects other for their differences.”

Join in prayer with Pope Francis and many others around the world for this intention.

March prayer intention of Pope Francis

The prayer intention for Pope Francis, March 2018

That the Church may appreciate the urgency of formation in spiritual discernment, both on the personal and communitarian levels.

Let us keep this intention in our morning offering, and our other daily prayers before the Lord.
