Pope Benedict's prayer intentions for January 2013

English: Pope Benedict XVI during general audition
The first day of each month I will publish Pope Benedict XVI's prayer intentions for the year 2013. You will notice that the 2013 intentions include prayers for praying for the Year of Faith, World Youth Day, global respect for human life and the environment and a prayer request for the protection of families.

The Apostleship of Prayer, founded in 1844 by the Jesuits, to draw the faithful's attention to be united with missionaries spreading the Good News through the praying for the Morning Offering. Each day is given to God; all of the good we do assists in working out our salvation. Remember that essential prayer? It was Pope Leo XIII who gave a ministry of praying for specific intentions with the Morning Offering, The Apostleship also promotes the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

So, join me in praying the Morning Offering and for Benedict's January intentions on a daily basis.

The general intention

That during this "Year of Faith" Christians may deepen their knowledge of the mystery of Christ and joyfully bear witness to the gift of faith in Him.

The missionary intention

That the Christian communities of the Middle East, which frequently suffer discrimination, may receive the strength of fidelity and perseverance of the Holy Spirit.
