THE HOLY FATHER’S PRAYER INTENTIONS FOR JUNE

Monthly Intention: National Leaders: That national leaders may firmly commit themselves to ending the arms trade, which victimizes so many innocent people.

Urgent Intention: Peace and Healing: May the Holy Spirit grant peace to the entire world. May he heal the wounds of war and terrorism, which most recently struck innocent civilians in London. Let us pray for the victims and their families.
