Evangelization – Young People:
That young people, especially in Latin America, follow the example of Mary and respond to the call of the Lord to communicate the joy of the Gospel to the world.
Father of kindness, I thank you for the enthusiasm and joy of young people. In them I find their capacity to dream, idealism and the strength to make this world a more peaceful and just place. Pour out your Holy Spirit on our communities, so that they may be meeting places between several generations, united in communion with you, celebrating your presence among us. May the enthusiasm of young people be, in your Church, the motive of a new missionary spirit, marked by joy, especially among those who need it most, the poorest, the most disadvantaged, those who have lost hope. During this month, I pray for the young people who will participate in World Youth Day in Panama and for the fruits, for the Church, of this great meeting. Amen.
Each year, the Holy Father asks for our prayers for a specific intention each month. We are invited to answer the Holy Father’s request and to join with many people worldwide in praying for this intention each month.
