Papal Intentions for August

Pope Francis’s general intention for this month is, that “parents and teachers may help the new generation to grow in upright conscience and life.” Let us pray that they fulfill their vocations to be living witnesses to the faith.

The Holy Father’s missionary intention for this month is, that “the local Church in Africa, faithfully proclaiming the Gospel, may promote peace and justice.” In the face of many troubles, let us pray that the people of Africa find peace in spreading the Word of God.

Let us pray with Pope Francis, then, for the manifestation of the faith in our homes, in our schools, and especially in the African Church. For pastoral comments on these intentions, see the Vatican news site.
