Pope Francis’ Prayer Intention for May 2022: For Faith-Filled Young People

This month of May, the Pope begins a cycle of three prayer intentions dedicated to the family. He has decided to begin by speaking first to young people, who “want to build something new.” He offers them an example to follow: “When I think of a model with whom young people can identify with, our Mother, Mary, always comes to mind.” Francis asks young people to take risks like she did, keeping in mind that they “need to discern and discover what Jesus wants” from them. – from the USCCB website.
