Those Distant from the Christian Faith, which is part of “The Pope Video” series promoted by the Vatican, was released Tuesday, July 4. We all know someone close to us who has grown distant from the faith. Let us help them to live the joy of Jesus and pray with the Pope that they might rediscover the beauty of the Christian life.

Every month we will see a new two-minute video from Pope Francis with his intentions and a motivating message. The project is an initiative of Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer), that aims to spread the Pope’s monthly intentions on the challenges facing Humanity.
The Pope tells us in this video:
Let us never forget that our joy is Jesus Christ — his faithful and inexhaustible love.
When a Christian becomes sad, it means that he has distanced himself from Jesus.
But then we must not leave him alone! We should offer him Christian hope — with our words, yes, but more with our testimony, with our freedom, with our joy.
Let us pray that our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the beauty of the Christian life.
