Pope’s prayer intentions for January 2011

Catholic World News - December 31, 2010

The Apostleship of Prayer has announced the prayer intentions of Pope Benedict XVI for January 2011.

The Pope’s general intention is “that the riches of the created world may be preserved, valued, and made available as God’s precious gift to all.” His missionary intention is “that Christians may attain full unity, witnessing to all the universal fatherhood of God.”

On December 30, the Vatican Information Service announced the papal prayer intentions for January 2011 but mistakenly reprinted the intentions for January 2010.

    I wish the Holy Father would have specified that "full unity" means that all Christians would become members of the Catholic Church. His words are vague on this which seems to be the case almost everywhere. Why are we so afraid to proclaim what the Church taught for almost 2000 years prior to the decades after Vatican II? Even Vatican II teaches a traditional doctrine on the Church. Why the ambiguity? I pray it will stop in my lifetime.
