Pope’s Intentions for September

2 Sep

woman prayingFollowing are the Intentions of our Holy Father Pope Francis for the month of September, courtesy of the Apostleship of Prayer:

  • Value of Silence. That people today, often overwhelmed by noise, may rediscover the value of silence and listen to the voice of God and their brothers and sisters.
  • Persecuted Christians. That Christians suffering persecution in many parts of the world may by their witness be prophets of Christ’s love.
    ***
    I don’t know about you, but I was especially struck by the prayer that we rediscover the value of silence. Yet at the same time, the prayer calls us to listen to the voice of God as well as to the voice of our brothers and sisters, especially the cries of those who are undergoing persecution and hardship around the world. So the voice that needs to be silent is our own, so that the Lord may transform us.
