Holy Father’s Prayer Intentions for August

I’m late to post these, but am so moved by both of Pope Francis’ intentions for August:


That parents and teachers may help the new generation to grow in upright conscience and life.


That the local Church in Africa, faithfully proclaiming the Gospel, may promote peace and justice.

Find additional commentary by the Apostleship of Prayer on both intentions here.
