Pope’s prayer intention for August

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

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

The July prayer intention of Pope Francis

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 of the Stamford Eparchy, in particular our pastors and those who serve as our spiritual fathers and priest-friends.
