Pope Benedict XVI: October 2008 Archives

Bxvi adoring.jpg"Prayer is less a function and more a disposition. Indeed, prayer, as the Catechism of the Catholic Church tells us, is 'a vital and personal relationship with the living God...the living relationship of the children of God with their Father'" (nn. 2558, 2565).




How much more vital and personal can prayer be than when it is before the Beloved?


The general intention

That the Synod of Bishops may help all those engaged in the service of the Word of God to transmit the truth of faith courageously in communion with the entire Church.


The mission intention

That in this month dedicated to the missions, every Christian community may feel the need to participate in the universal mission with prayer, sacrifice, and concrete help.
