THE POPE'S INTENTIONS FOR JULY:
PRAY FOR FAMILIES

 

The often-frenetic rhythm of life that we follow is detrimental to our family life. This is an important problem, because no one—neither we as individuals nor society as a whole—can do without families. This is truer now than ever during the time of crisis that we are living.

As Pope Francis says, “families are not a problem, they are first and foremost an opportunity.”

Pope Francis – July 2020

The family ought to be protected.

It faces many dangers: the fast pace of life, stress…

Sometimes, parents forget to play with their children.

The Church needs to encourage families and stay at their side, helping them to discover ways that allow them to overcome all of these difficulties.

Let us pray that today’s families may be accompanied with love, respect and guidance, and especially, that they may be protected by the State.
