Every month the pope asks us to pray for some special intention. In this month of July he invites us to pray for families.
"The family has to be protected. There are many dangers to which it is faced: the rhythm of life, stress ... Sometimes parents forget to play with their children. The Church must encourage and be with families helping them discover ways that allow them to overcome all these difficulties. Let us pray that families in today's world are accompanied with love, respect and advice. And especially, they are protected by the States"
Frédéric Fornos, international director of the World Network of Prayer for the Pope, explains the meaning of this prayer intention: “To pray for this intention of prayer is to set out, at the service of our families, supporting the associations that help them face their various challenges, since true prayer is incarnated in our lives ”, and encourages us that in the month of July “Let us dedicate free time each day to our families; each person knows specifically what this means"
As a family from Nazareth we join this initiative with the conviction of the strength that prayer has together with concrete action.
