B16 kisses child Oct 27 2010.jpgYou & me, all Christians and people of good will ought to have a habit of prayer, of turning to God because prayer has the effect of naturalizing and lifting the soul beyond the temporal. Join me in praying for these two intentions given by the Pope to us when we turn to God.

The general intention

That through the support of the Christian community,
all victims of addiction may find in the power of our saving God strength for a
radical life change.

The missionary intention

That the Latin American Churches may move forward with the
continent-wide mission proposed by their bishops, assuming their share of the
universal missionary task of God’s people.

The general intention
That the proclamation of the Word of God may renew people’s hearts, encouraging them to work toward authentic social progress.

That by opening our hearts to love we may put an end to the wars and conflicts which continue to bloody our world.

Pope Benedict XVI’s monthly prayer intentions for August 2010

Saint Alphonsus Ligouri, whose feast is celebrated today, tells in his “Necessity and Power of Prayer,” that “St. Isidore observes, the devil is never more busy to distract us with the thoughts of worldly cares than when he perceives us praying and asking God for grace: ‘Then mostly does the devil insinuate thoughts, when he sees a man praying.'”

In union with Pope Benedict and the Church, we challenge the devil in making the following prayers to God:

The general intention

That those who are unemployed, homeless, or in any serious need may find welcome, understanding, and help in overcoming their difficulties.

The missionary intention

That the Church may be a home for all people in need, opening its doors to any who suffer from racial or religious discrimination, hunger, or wars forcing their emigration.
