The Apostleship of Prayer announced this general intention chosen by the Pope: “That public opinion may be more aware of the problems of millions of displaced persons and refugees, and that concrete solutions may be found for their often tragic situation.”

The Holy Father also chooses an apostolic intention for each month. In August he will pray: “That those Christians who are discriminated against and persecuted in many countries because of the name of Christ may have their human rights, equality and religious freedom recognized, in order to be able to live and profess their own faith freely.”
