VATICAN CITY, JULY 1, 2009 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI will be praying in July for the Christians in the Middle East.



The Apostleship of Prayer announced this general intention chosen by the Pope: "That the Christians of the Middle East may live their faith in full freedom and be an instrument of peace and reconciliation."

The Holy Father also chooses an apostolic intention for each month. In June he will pray: "That the Church may be the seed and nucleus of a humanity reconciled and reunited in God's one and only family, thanks to the testimony of all the faithful in every country of the world."
