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.
