Pope Benedict XVI: July 2012 Archives

This love affair with Christ, this love story which is the whole of Monsignor Giussani's life was however far from every superficial enthusiasm, from every vague romanticism. Really seeing Christ, he knew that to encounter Christ means to follow Christ. This encounter is a road, a journey, a journey that passes also--as we heard in the psalm--through the "valley of darkness."

Pope Benedict XVI

B16 blessing at Sunday Ang.jpg

As Blessed Ildefonso Schuster reminds, "Prayer is indeed the atmosphere in which holiness develops and flourishes."  So, let's work on our prayer with His Holiness for the month of July with the hope of a flourishing life of prayer in our daily life.

For the month July let's pray for the following:

The Pope's general intention

That everyone may have work in safe and secure conditions. 

The Pope's missionary intention

That Christian volunteers in mission territories may witness to the love of Christ.
