Pope Francis’ Prayer Intention for August 2019

Schools of True Human Growth

August is the best month for taking your foot of the ‘work pedal’ a bit and concentrating on family. Older member families won’t be around forever, and if we are not careful we will be left with regrets that we left things un-said. All to quickly our children grown up and leave the nest, and if we are not careful we will have missed out on things we wished we had shared. The ‘here and now’ is the best time to celebrate family life. Family life is important. It’s within our own families that we build each other’s sense of value. It’s within our own families that we grow stronger. It’s within the family that our children learn what is important and what isn’t. This month we are invited to share Pope Francis’ prayer intention, “… That families, through their life of prayer and love, become ever more clearly ‘schools of true human growth’. ”
