Formation in Spiritual Discernment : March Prayer Intention of Pope Francis
We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: Formation in Spiritual Discernment
Text of the March video:
'The Church today needs to grow in the ability of spiritual discernment.
There are many ways of living life well, using it for serving human and Christian ideals.
We were created by God out of love and to love. Every Christian ought to grow in the ability to “read within” his or her life, and to understand where and to what he or she is being called by the Lord, in order to carry on his mission.
The times in which we live demand that we develop a profound capacity of discernment… To discern, from among all the voices we hear, which is the Lord’s voice, which is the voice of Him who guides us to the Resurrection, to Life, and the voice that frees us from falling into the “culture of death.
Let us pray together that the Church may appreciate the urgency of formation in spiritual discernment, both on the personal and communitarian levels.'
