Pope’s Prayer Intentions For This Month 

2022

September

For the abolition of the death penalty

We pray that the death penalty, which attacks the dignity of the human person, may be legally abolished in every country.

October

For a Church open to everyone

We pray for the Church; ever faithful to, and courageous in preaching the Gospel, may the Church be a community of solidarity, fraternity and welcome, always living in an atmosphere of synodality.

November

For children who suffer

We pray for children who are suffering, especially those who are homeless, orphans, and victims of war; may they be guaranteed access to education and the opportunity to experience family affection.

December

For volunteer not-for-profit organisations

We pray that volunteer non-profit organisations committed to human development find people dedicated to the common good and ceaselessly seek new paths to international cooperation.

2023

January

For educators

We pray for that educators may be credible witnesses, teaching fraternity rather than competition and helping the youngest and most vulnerable above all.

February

For parishes

We pray that parishes, placing communion at the centre, may increasingly become communities of faith, fraternity and welcome those most in need.

March

For victims of abuse

We pray for those who suffered harm from members of the Church; may they find within the Church a concrete response to their pain and suffering.

April

For a culture of peace and non violence, by decreasing the use of weapons by States and citizens.

May

For church movements and groups

We pray that Church movements and groups may rediscover their mission of evangelization each day, placing their own charisms, at the service of needs in the world.

June

For the abolition of torture

We pray that the international community may commit in a concrete way to ensuring the abolition of torture and guarantee support to victims and their families.

July

For a Eucharistic life

We pray that Catholics may place the celebration of the Eucharist at the heart of their lives, transforming human relationships in a very deep way and opening to the encounter with God and all their brothers and sisters.

August

For World Youth Day

We pray the World Youth Day in Lisbon will help young people to live and witness the Gospel in their own lives.

September

For people living on the margins

We pray for those persons living on the margins of society, in inhumane life conditions; may not be overlooked by institutions and never considered of lesser importance.

October

For the Synod

We pray for the Church, that she may adopt listening and dialogue as a lifestyle at every level, and allow herself  to be guided by the Holy Spirit towards the peripheries of the world.

November

For the Pope

We pray for the Holy Father; as he fulfills his mission, may he continue to accompany the flock interested to him, with the help of the Holy Spirit.

December

For persons with disabilities

We pray that people living with disabilities may be at the centre of attention in society, and that institutions may offer inclusive programs which value their active participation.
