We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month’s intention: The Mission of Religious.
Pope Francis’ Intentions for 2018: English (PDF)
‘The joy with which men and women religious fulfill their mission is a blessing for us all. Let us support them so they may find their path, accompanying the most disadvantaged.’
Text of the video:
‘Religious, with their prayer, poverty, and patience, are essential to the Church’s mission.
More than ever, with the challenges of today’s world, we need their complete dedication to proclaiming the Gospel.
Let us not allow ourselves to be robbed of missionary enthusiasm and let us pray that consecrated religious men and women may bestir themselves, and be present among the poor, the marginalized, and those who have no voice.’
– Pope Francis, October 2018
