Papal Intentions For April

This month, Pope Francis asks us to pray for our creation, that we may learn to respect it and “care for it as a gift of God.” He also asks us to pray for persecuted Christians, that they “may feel the consoling presence of the Risen Lord and the solidarity of all the Church.”

Creation is often disregarded in our “culture of waste,” and Christians are being increasingly persecuted throughout the world. Please join us in praying with the Holy Father, that these evils might stop and that those who love Jesus might feel the presence of His mystical body, even in the midst of great suffering.
