POPE FRANCIS PRAYER INTENTION FOR AUGUST: In his prayer intention for the month of August 2019, Pope Francis invites us to pray that "families, through their life of prayer and love, become ever more clearly schools of true human development." This is his prayer:

What kind of world do we want to leave for the future? Let us leave a world with families. Let us care for our families, because they are true schools for the future, spaces of freedom, and centres of humanity. And let us reserve a special place in our families for individual and communal prayer. Let us pray that families, through their life of prayer and love, become ever more clearly “schools of true human development”.
