/, News Feed/Pope Francis’ July prayer intentions: For priests and their pastoral ministry

Pope Francis has released his video message accompanying his monthly prayer intention for June, which this month is for ‘priests and their pastoral ministry’.

In his message, Pope Francis invited the faithful to ‘pray together that priests, who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work, may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord and in their friendship with their brother priests.’

‘The full text of Pope Francis’ prayer intention reads:

‘The tiredness of priests… Do you know how often I think about it?

‘Priests, with their virtues and defects, work in many different areas.

‘Working on so many active fronts, they cannot remain inactive after a disappointment.

‘At such times, it’s good for them to remember that the people love their priests, need them, and trust in them.

‘Let us pray together that priests, who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work, may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord and in their friendship with their brother priests.’

The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network of the Apostleship of Prayer developed ‘The Pope Video’ initiative to assist in the worldwide dissemination of monthly intentions of the Holy Father in relation to the challenges facing humanity. For more information, see www.popesprayer.net.
