As on every first Sunday of the month, we pray for the monthly intention of the Holy Father as a part of the Universal Prayer
Pope Francis' Monthly Intention
"That the language of love and dialogue may always prevail over the language of conflict."
We live in a world of much violence—wars around the world, in our communities, and even in our homes. Seeing and experiencing this violence provokes fear and anger within us, often tempting us to respond with more violence. But this isn’t God’s answer to violence.
