Priests and their Pastoral Ministry: July Prayer Intention of Pope Francis

6 July 2018 | General Interest

We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: Priests and their Pastoral Ministry

    

That priests, who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work, may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord and in their friendship with their brother priests.

Text of the July 2018 video:

"The tiredness of priests... Do you know how often I think about it?
Priests, with their virtues and defects, work in many different areas.
Working on so many active fronts, they cannot remain inactive after a disappointment.
At such times, it's good for them to remember that the people love their priests, need them, and trust in them.
Let us pray together that priests, who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work, may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord and in their friendship with their brother priests."
