Since the 19th century popes have asked the Apostleship of Prayer to convey papal prayer intentions each month and encourage all people to join in daily prayer.
Now, in addition to the text prayers, CatholicPhilly.com offers a monthly video of Pope Francis’ prayer intentions. Watch this month’s video here, in Italian with English subtitles, and pray the prayer intentions below.
Universal Intention: Care for Creation.
That we may take good care of creation — a gift freely given — cultivating and protecting it for future generations.
Evangelization Intention: Asia.
That opportunities may increase for dialogue and encounter between the Christian faith and the peoples of Asia.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
