The Pope’s Intentions for June

Universal: Immigrants and Refugees   That immigrants and refugees may find welcome and respect in the countries to which they come.

Evangelisation: Vocations  That the personal encounter with Jesus may arouse in many young people the desire to offer their own lives in priesthood or consecrated life.


Give your Bread  O Lord, we pray to you

Give your bread, Lord, to those who are hungry, give hunger for yourself to those who have bread, for you alone, Lord, can satisfy our desire: O Lord, we pray to you.

Give your strength to those who are weak, give humility to those who think themselves strong, for you alone, Lord, are our strength: O Lord, we pray to you.

Gvie faith to those who are in doubt, give doubt to those who believe they possess you, for you alone, Lord, are the truth: O Lord, we pray to you.

Give confidence to those who are afraid, give your fear to those who have too much confidence, for you alone, Lord, support our hope: O Lord, we pray to you.

Give light to those who are searching for you, preserve in your love those who have found you, for you alone, Lord, can fulfill our love: O Lord, we pray to you.                (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)
