Unemployed, Homeless and Migrants in Pope’s Prayers this August


  • Category:

(26 Jul 10 - RV) People without work or homes or who are otherwise in serious need, will be the focus of Pope Benedict XVI's prayer intentions this August. Each month the Holy Father issues general and missionary prayer intentions, to encourage Catholics worldwide to pray for particular intentions. In August, Pope Benedict is asking people to pray that the homeless and unemployed may find understanding and welcome, as well as concrete help in overcoming their difficulties.

His mission intention is that that the Church may be a "home" for all people, ready to open its doors to any who are suffering from racial or religious discrimination, hunger, or wars forcing them to emigrate to other countries.
