Catholic World News - December 28, 2012
The Vatican has released the prayer intentions of Pope Benedict XVI for January 2013.
The Pope’s general intention is: “That in this Year of Faith Christians may deepen their knowledge of the mystery of Christ and witness joyfully to the gift of faith in him.”
His missionary intention is: “That the Christian communities of the Middle East, often discriminated against, may receive from the Holy Spirit the strength of fidelity and perseverance.”
The Vatican released the Pope’s prayer intentions on Friday, December 28, because the press office will be closed until January 2.
