Pope Francis’ prayer intention for August 2018 is ‘For the treasure of Families’. The theme is promoted throughout the world by the Pope’s Worldwide, Prayer Network.
As he does each month, the Holy Father released a video on the theme for the month.
The Full Text of the Video
When speaking of families, often the image of a treasure comes to my mind.
Today’s rhythm of life, stress, pressure at work, and also the little attention paid by institutions, could put them in danger.
It’s not enough to talk about their importance: it’s necessary to promote concrete means and to develop their role in society with a good family policy.
Together, let us ask Jesus that any far-reaching decisions of economists and politicians may protect the family as one of the treasures of humanity.
