Those distant from the Christian faith

"Let us pray that our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the beauty of the Christian life.” This is monthly intention of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network for July 2017.

From the Pope

Pope Francis: “Let us never forget that our joy is Jesus Christ — his faithful and inexhaustible love.

"When a Christian becomes sad, it means that he has distanced himself from Jesus. But then we must not leave him alone! We should offer him Christian hope — with our words, yes, but more with our testimony, with our freedom, with our joy.

"Let us pray that our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the beauty of the Christian life.”
