ROME, JUNE 30, 2004 (Zenit.org).- During the month of July, John Paul II will pray "that, in the young Churches, the lay faithful may receive more attention and may be turned to greater account for evangelization."



That is how the Apostleship of Prayer announced the missionary intention that the Pope will assume as his own, for which he will offer prayers and sacrifices together with thousands of the faithful.

Every month, the Pope also offers his prayer for a general intention, which in July will be: "That all those who are able to benefit from a holiday period during this time of the year may be helped during their vacation to rediscover in God their inner harmony and to open themselves to the love of human beings."
