The Holy Father offers a special prayer intention every month. In July, Pope Francis asks all Catholics to pray for the pastoral care of the sick.

We pray for those receiving the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick, and for their loved ones and ministers. We pray that, through the Sacrament, God’s eternal love and compassion may spread to all his people, so they become a sign of hope.

Watch Pope Francis’ video and be sure to offer up your own prayer intention throughout the month.
