CALENDAR 2022 Let us allow Our Lady to take us by the hand. Each time that we hold the Rosary in our hands and pray to her, we are taking a step forward, towards the great destination of life. Pope Francis – Angelus, 15 August 2019

God’s truth, beautifully told. s in c e 1 86 8


The heart of Christ is the heart of a God who, out of love, “emptied” himself. Pope Francis, Homily, January 2014

Pope Francis’ prayer intention For true human fraternity We pray for all those suffering from religious discrimination and persecution; may their own rights and dignity be recognised, which originate from being brothers and sisters in the human family.
