Pope Francis’ July Prayer Intention

In July, Pope Francis asks us to pray for those who have strayed from the faith. Watch the video below. Full text can be found below the video.

“Let us never forget that our joy is Jesus Christ — his faithful and inexhaustible love.

When a Christian becomes sad, it means that he has distanced himself from Jesus.

But then we must not leave him alone! We should offer him Christian hope — with our words, yes, but more with our testimony, with our freedom, with our joy.

Let us pray that our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the beauty of the Christian life.”
