Below are the intentions of our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, for the month of October 2008. Please remember these, and the Holy Father himself, in your personal prayers:
That the Synod of Bishops may help bishops and theologians as well as catechists and pastoral workers engaged in the service of the Word of God transmit with courage the truth of the faith in communion with the entire Church.
That in this month dedicated to the missions, through the promotional activities of the Pontifical Missionary Works and other organisms, the Christian may feel the need to participate in the Church’s universal mission with prayer, sacrifice and concrete help.
Ad majorem Dei gloriam.
