Pope Francis' Monthly Prayer Intention - February 2024 - TranscriptAuthor: Archdiocese of Brisbane
Hi, my name is Sr Monika Bury and I am a member of the Missionary Sisters of Christ the King for Polish immigrants. Part of my ministry is pastoral work as a chaplain for patients into hospitals in Brisbane.
This month Pope Francis asks us to pray for a special intention relating to my work. I am privileged to be the face and hands of Christ to those going through challenging times. I witness suffering in my ministry and see how the presence of God gives them peace.
I would like to ask you to pray with me for those with a terminal illness and their families. That they may receive the necessary physical and spiritual care and accompaniment. Let’s remember them in our prayer especially this month.
