Holy Father's Prayer Intention for February 2017
Starting in 2017 the Pope will present only one prepared prayer intention per month, rather than the two presented before this year. He plans, however, to add a second prayer intention each month related to current events or urgent needs, like disaster relief. The urgent prayer request will help mobilize prayer and action related to the urgent situation. We will publish these urgent prayer intentions as they become available.
Comfort for the Afflicted
That all those who are afflicted, especially the poor, refugees, and marginalized, may find welcome and comfort in our communities.
Sacredness of Life
We pray for the children who are in danger of the interruption of pregnancy, as well as for persons who are at the end of life — every life is sacred! — so that no one is left alone and that love may defend the meaning of life.
