Pope's Prayer Intention for August 2018




Join us in prayer for the intentions entrusted to us by Pope Francis. For August 2018, we join the Holy Father in praying for:

Universal – The Treasure of Families: That any far-reaching decisions of economists and politicians may protect the family as one of the treasures of humanity.

Pope Francis prays, "When speaking of families, often the image of a treasure comes to my mind.
 
Today's rhythm of life, stress, pressure at work, and also the little attention paid by institutions, could put them in danger.
 
It's not enough to talk about their importance: it's necessary to promote concrete means and to develop their role in society with a good family policy.
 
Together, let us ask Jesus that any far-reaching decisions of economists and politicians may protect the family as one of the treasures of humanity."
