The May prayer intention of the Pope reads:
“That the lay faithful may fulfill their specific mission, by responding with creativity to the challenges that face the world today.”
Join in prayer with Pope Francis and many others around the world for this intention.
Today, Sunday, 28 January 2018, Pope Francis made a pastoral visit to the Ukrainian Basilica of Holy Wisdom (Hagia Sophia) in Rome, the spiritual home of the Ukrainian Catholic community. He was the guest of Patriarch Sviatoslav, the head of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church.
Ines Martin writes about the visit here.
Here is Pope Francis’ prayer intention for April 2017. Let us be united with him in prayer for young people.
That young people may respond generously to their vocations and seriously consider offering themselves to God in the priesthood or consecrated life.
The Pope’s intention for January 2017 is for Christian Unity.
That all Christians may be faithful to the Lord’s teaching by striving with prayer and fraternal charity to restore ecclesial communion and by collaborating to meet the challenges facing humanity.
Let us be united in prayer with the Holy Father in praying to the Most Holy Trinity for the intention of Christian unity.
