Pope enjoys breeze.jpgPraying with and for another expands our life, it gives us a new point of view. This is especially true when we unite ourselves in prayer with the monthly prayer intentions published by the Apostleship
of Prayer
, and published here on the Communio
blog on first day of the month.

The Apostleship of Prayer may
be consider as the Pope’s personal prayer group. Blessed John Paul II wrote in
1985 of the Apostleship of Prayer as “a precious treasure from the Pope’s heart
and the Heart of Christ.” Since 1844, the Apostleship has been a work of the
Society of Jesus and there are some 50 million apostles praying with and for
the Holy Father. Consider joining the Apostleship of Prayer by visiting the link above.

Our prayer intentions…

General intention

That bishops, priests, and all ministers of
the Gospel may bear the courageous witness of fidelity to the crucified and
risen Lord.

Mission intention

That the pilgrim church on earth may shine as a
light to the nations.

Remember Your mercies, O Lord, as a we lift our prayer to
you for the Church.
