Pope's prayer intention for July 2018

For the month of July, the Pope has asked for prayers for priests, especially those who are tired and lonely in their pastoral work.

Pope Francis says that priests “with their virtues and defects, work in many different areas.” He says that they work “on so many active fronts... they cannot remain inactive after a disappointment. Thus, it is good for them to remember that the people love their priests, need them and trust in them.”
