The Apostleship of Prayer announced this general intention chosen by the Pope: "That children may be respected and loved and never be the victims of exploitation in its various forms."
The Holy Father also chooses an apostolic intention for each month. In November he will pray: "That at Christmas the peoples of the earth may recognize in the Word Incarnate the light which illuminates every man and that the Nations may open their doors to Christ, the Savior of the world."
