Pope’s August Prayer Intentions Focus on Sports

With the Olympics set to begin in Rio, Francis praying that sports can help bring about world peace

This month, with the Olympics starting in just a few days, Pope Francis will be praying that sports will help to bring about world peace.

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

The Holy Father’s universal prayer intention is: “That sports may be an opportunity for friendly encounters between peoples and may contribute to peace in the world.”

His intention for evangelisation is: “That Christians may live the Gospel, giving witness to faith, honesty, and love of neighbor.”
