Families, Schools of Human Development: August Prayer Intention of Pope Francis

9 August 2019 | General Interest

We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: Families, Schools of Human Development

Let us pray that families, through their life of prayer and love, become ever more clearly “schools of true human development”.

    

What kind of world do we want to leave for the future?
Let us leave a world with families.
Let us care for our families, because they are true schools for the future, spaces of freedom, and centers of humanity.
And let us reserve a special place in our families for individual and communal prayer.
Let us pray that families, through their life of prayer and love, become ever more clearly “schools of true human development”.

-Pope Francis, August 2019
