Pope's May Prayer Intention: For Deacons

Pope's May Prayer Intention: For Deacons

In his prayer intention for the month of May, Pope Francis calls us to "pray that deacons, faithful in their service to the Word and the poor, may be an invigorating symbol for the entire Church."

"Deacons are not second-level priests.
They are part of the clergy and live their vocation in and with their family.
They are dedicated to the service of the poor, who carry within them the face of the suffering Christ.
They are the guardians of service in the Church.
Let us pray that deacons, faithful in their service to the Word and the poor, maybe an invigorating symbol for the entire Church."

- Pope Francis, May 2020
