Today's Prayer with the Pope
Lord Jesus Christ, your heart as full of compassion for all men and women, especially for those in pain and need. Help with your sacrifice in the Mass, let me not be wrapped up in my own selfish concerns, but open to your presence in all you children.
And I pray with Mary and the whole Church for the Pope's intentions this month:
That children who are victims of abandonment and of every form of violence may find the love and protection they need.
That Christians, enlightened by the light of the incarnate Word, may prepare humanity for the coming of the Saviour.
