“Lay people are on the front line of the life of the Church. We need their testimony regarding the truth of the Gospel and their example of expressing their faith by practicing solidarity. Let us give thanks for the lay people who take risks, who are not afraid and who offer reasons for hope to the poorest, to the excluded, to the marginalized. Let us pray together this month that the lay faithful may fulfill their specific mission, the mission that they received in Baptism, putting their creativity at the service of the challenges of today's world. ”
Praying with Pope Francis for the lay faithful
For May 2018, the Holy Father Pope Francis requests us to pray that the lay faithful may fulfil their specific mission, by responding with creativity to the challenges that face the world today.
