Papal Intention: World Youth Day

VATICAN CITY, JULY 1, 2008 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI’s missionary prayer intention for July is for the success of the World Youth Day in Sydney this month.

The Apostleship of Prayer announced the general intention chosen by the Pope, “That there may be an increase in the number of those who, as volunteers, offer their services to the Christian community with generous and prompt availability.”

The Holy Father also chooses a missionary intention for each month. In July he will pray, “That the World Youth Day held in Sydney, Australia, may awaken the fire of divine love in young people and make them sowers of hope for a new humanity.”
