Pope Benedict XVI: July 2008 Archives

Benedict XVI arms.jpgIt is a venerable Catholic custom to unite our prayers to those of the Pope's. Frequently, we pray, that is, we state in our morning offering "...for the intentions of the Holy Father...." Remembering that "Prayer is man standing before God in need of everything, but also with trust that God will give everything, and bring us to the fulfillment he has destined for us" (John Janaro, Praying with Saint Paul, 221). Hence, here are the August intentions the Pope has asked us to remember in our prayers before the Throne of Grace:


The general intention
That the human family may learn to respect God's plan for the world and become ever more aware that Creation is God's great gift.

The mission intention
That the answer of the entire people of God to the common calling to holiness and mission may be promoted and fostered by means of careful discernment of charisms and constant commitment to spiritual and cultural formation.
