Pope's Prayer Intentions for September

Pope Francis' Prayer Intention for September focuses on parishes. In the video to accompany this intention (see below), Pope Francis remarks that 'parishes must be in contact with homes, with people’s lives, with the life of society'.  The pontiff emphasised the calling of all baptized Christians to be missionaries and the importance of faith been communicated by parishes and thus charity will be seen. He concluded by stating that the doors of parishes 'must be opened so that Jesus can go out with all of the joy of his message'.
