Pope's Prayer Intentions for July

Pope Francis' Prayer Intention for July focuses on lapsed Christians. In the video to accompany this intention (see below), he points out that we all have a role in providing 'Christian hope' to those who distance themselves from the Church through our words but also 'with our testimony,  with our freedom, with our joy'. Separately, the Holy Father has also announced that the urgent prayer intentions will be discontinued.


Prayer Intention: Lapsed Christians

Pope Francis prays that:

"That our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the merciful closeness of the Lord and the beauty of the Christian life."
