Benedict XVI Praying for Ecumenical Event

VATICAN CITY, AUG. 31, 2007 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI is asking prayers so that the 3rd Ecumenical Assembly will be a step toward unity.

The ecumenical gathering, to be held in Sibiu, Romania, next Tuesday through Thursday, will be the Pope’s prayer intention for this month, according to the Apostleship of Prayer.

The Holy Father’s general intention for the month of September is: “That the ecumenical assembly of Sibiu in Romania may contribute to the growth of unity among all Christians, for whom the Lord prayed at the Last Supper.”

His apostolic intention is: “That, following Christ joyfully, all missionaries may know how to overcome the difficulties they meet in everyday life.”
