Welcome to Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network Australia
The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network is the new name for the Apostleship of Prayer. It’s an international apostolic service entrusted by the Pope to the Jesuits. It has at its heart the devotion to the Heart of Christ, a heart open to all the concerns that face humanity. Devotion to the Sacred Heart first inspired the Apostleship of Prayer. Now, there is more emphasis on this being the personal prayer network of the Holy Father. Pope Francis has taken a keen personal interest in the Network. Praying for the Holy Father’s intentions helps us to look outside of ourselves and open our hearts – in other words, to become apostolic, to become those “Missionary Disciples” that Pope Francis always encourages us to be.
