Praying with the Pope in August
Families, Schools of Human Growth
That families, through their life of prayer and love, become ever more clearly "schools of true human growth"
Pope Francis, August 2019
Proposals for the Month
- Have a conversation with your spouse and/or with educators, about how they are educating children in a logic of openness to others, solidarity, sharing, respect and forgiveness. What aspects need to be improved? What can be done to help families that are struggling?
- As a family, throughout this month, try to pray weekly with one another. For example: Pray before an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, lighting a candle for each family member and entrusting your family to his love.
- In your community, promote a training meeting on the challenges that education poses in families today and how to find concrete ways to grow in prayer and love.
