Pope Praying for Parents in Mission as Educators

And for Church in Africa to Promote Peace

The Apostleship of Prayer announced the intentions chosen by the Pope for August.

His general intention is “that parents and teachers may help the new generation to grow in upright conscience and life.”

For his mission intention, the Holy Father is praying “that the local Church in Africa, faithfully proclaiming the Gospel, may promote peace and justice.”
