Pray with Pope Francis using ClickToPray app

We’re re-posting this review of the free app, ClickToPray ,because it has been such a joy to use and it’s the first day of the month. That means it’s time to switch to new prayer intentions of Pope Francis –pray along with him using this app. Did you know that each month the Pope announces his specific prayer intentions?  These prayers are generally aimed at particular challenges facing humanity and the mission of the Church. If you are going to walk through a Holy Door of Mercy to receive the indulgences attached to this Jubilee Year of Mercy, you will need to pray for the Pope’s intentions as part of your pilgrimage. It’s good to know what those intentions are and this app brings you right into Pope Francis’ prayers.

ClickToPray (Free)  Apple |  Android is designed to help people around the world to pray along with Pope Francis in these particular intentions of his. To encourage you stay engaged in daily prayer, the app gives you the ability to send reminders to your smart phone three times a day, morning, afternoon and evening–a different prayer or reflection each time. Brought to you by the Apostleship of Prayer, a Jesuit organization, the Click To Pray app is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French enabling people from around the world to unite their prayers with the Pope’s. In addition to the prayer reminders, registered users may post a prayer on the app/website Prayer Wall and share them on social media.

Pope Francis’ Prayer Intentions for June 2016

The Pope’s universal intention is: “That the aged, marginalized, and those who have no one may find, even within the huge cities of the world, opportunities for encounter and solidarity.”

His intention for evangelization is: “That seminarians and men and woman entering religious life may have mentors who live the joy of the Gospel and prepare them wisely for their mission.”

The prayers on the ClickToPray app for each day take a component of the Pope’s general prayer intentions for the month and focus them on a particular element of concern for the day. The prayers are brief and well-written with heart and compassion. When you open the app, you can see how many people around the world have prayed the very prayer you are holding in your hands (on your mobile device). Here’s a screenshot of a prayer for the morning which follows the theme of the Pope’s intentions for the particular month.
