Pope Francis’ Prayer Intention for June

The Way of the Heart

Our prayer, with the Pope in both his monthly and his new daily Intentions, is always

oriented towards changing our own hearts, preparing ourselves for mission in whatever

life-situation we’re in. For almost every person on the planet, that situation changed

drastically since before Lent this year. We are only just beginning to learn and to reflect

on how much of that change is permanent, on how much life has changed forever. Many indeed are suffering, whether through illness or by watching loved ones sicken. Part of us longs for a return to normal, leading us to examine what we meant by that normal, and to face our fears that it might never return. Therefore, it is important not to let fear control us; the love of the Heart of Christ will be our great strength.

This month we are invited to join Pope Francis’ prayer intention

“….that all those who suffer may find their way in life, allowing themselves to be touched by the Heart of Jesus.”

Each month the Pope entrusts prayer intentions to his Worldwide Prayer Network, the Apostleship of Prayer. These intentions express his great concern for humanity and the mission of the Church. His monthly prayer intention (one month is universal and the next month is for evangelization) is a global call to transform our prayer into “concrete gestures” of service. It is a monthly action plan mobilizing us to work together to build a more human and caring world.
