April

For health care workers

We pray for health care workers who serve the sick and the elderly, specially in the poorest countries; may they be adequately supported by governments and local communities.

May

For faith-filled young people

We pray for all young people, called to live life to the fullest; may they see in Mary’s life the way to listen, the depth of discernment, the courage that faith generates, and the dedication to service.

June

For families

We pray for Christian families around the world; may they embody and experience unconditional love and advance in holiness in their daily lives.

July

For the elderly

We pray for the elderly,  who represents the roots and memory of the people; may their experience and wisdom help young people to look towards the future with hope and responsibility.

August

For small businesses

We pray for small and medium sized businesses; in the midst of economic and social crisis, may they find ways to continue operating and serving their communities.

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.
