Pope Francis' Prayer Intentions for July: Lapsed Christians
For the month of July, Pope Francis has asked us to prayer for lapsed Christians, the sheep who have strayed from the flock.
He asks that we do the following help them to "rediscover the merciful closeness of the Lord and beauty of the Christian life."
First we must pray. These are still the Lord's children. They were baptized into the Body of Christ. We must share our concerns with Jesus as he shares his concern with us.
We must then act. Don't nag. Actions have always been louder than words. We must share God's merciful love through our own loving actions. Preach by living a merciful and loving life. These actions will show how deep God's love for us is. This life will provide a tangible example of Jesus to those who have gone astray.
