The Papal prayer intention for November 2018:
That the language of love and dialogue may always prevail over the language of conflict.
Join in prayer with this intention in mind and heart with the Holy Father.
That consecrated religious men and women may bestir themselves, and be present among the poor, the marginalized, and those who have no voice.
In your daily prayer, pray for this intention.
(“The Holy Father has entrusted these intentions in a particular way to the Apostleship of Prayer, an organization that works to encourage Christians to respond to the Pope’s appeal and to deepen their daily prayer.”)
The September Prayer Intention of the Pope:
That young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries.
For August, the intention we are asked to pray for in communion with the Roman Pontiff, Francis,
That any far-reaching decisions of economists and politicians may protect the family as one of the treasures of humanity.
Let us join our prayer with that of the Pope’s for this intention:
That priests, who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work, may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord and in their friendship with their brother priests.
Prayers for all of our priests of the Stamford Eparchy, in particular our pastors and those who serve as our spiritual fathers and priest-friends.
