As candidates for US president are making headlines and as the Pope gears up for his trip this month to South America, his monthly prayer intentions bring both of these situations before the Lord.
The Apostleship of Prayer announced the intentions chosen by the Pope for July.
His universal intention is “Politics. That political responsibility may be lived at all levels as a high form of charity.”
And the evangelization intention is for “the Poor in Latin America. That, amid social inequalities, Latin American Christians may bear witness to love for the poor and contribute to a more fraternal society.”
