Immigrants & Refugees: Pope's Prayer Intention for June 2015

Last edited 23rd June 2015

June is the month traditionally dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Besides celebrating a feast in his honour on June 12, we will honour the Immaculate Heart of his mother the next day. These celebrations call us to have hearts like theirs—totally open to the love of the Father who loves each person and sent the Son to offer his life for the salvation of all. As members of the Body of Christ, the Church, we are called to share the concerns and desires of the Heart of Jesus.
