For families

June 2022

The Pope's prayer intention (June 2022)

We pray for Christian families around the world; may they embody and experience unconditional love and advance in holiness in their daily lives.

Why all this emphasis on marriage and the family?

Family is where we originate, where we grow up, where we learn to love and pray, where we become who we are. Good families are the cornerstones of our society. Families need our support and that of God, for love and faith help to face any difficulties. You may have many questions about this: the Tweeting with GOD app can help you find answers.
