The Apostleship of Prayer announced the general intention, which the Pope makes his own. He offers his prayers and sacrifices together with thousands of laity, religious, priests and bishops.
The announcement states the intention for this month is “For Peaceful Coexistence among Christians, Jews and Muslims in the Holy Land.”
Every month, the Pope also prays for a missionary intention. This month it is: “That in Oceania priestly and religious vocations for evangelization in the local Churches may receive special care.”
