BENEDICT XVI’S PRAYER INTENTIONS FOR OCTOBER

VATICAN CITY, 30 SEP 2009 (VIS) – Pope Benedict’s general prayer intention for October is: "That Sunday may be lived as the day on which Christians gather to celebrate the risen Lord, participating in the Eucharist".

His mission intention is: "That the entire People of God, to whom Christ entrusted the mandate to go and preach the Gospel to every creature, may eagerly assume their own missionary responsibility and consider it the highest service they can offer humanity".

One Response to BENEDICT XVI’S PRAYER INTENTIONS FOR OCTOBER

  1. thouart says:

    Words mean things. I can see what this intention might have looked like if issued from the lips of Pope Pius X, or any Pope prior to Vatican II.

    “That Sunday may be kept and cherished by all CATHOLIC families as the central worship of their earthly existence, by worthily, participating in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and receiving the gift of God Himself in the Eucharist.”

    Fr. Z.: Doesn’t Pope Benedict’s intention lack teaching?
    (sounds a little ICEL, 70’s lovey dovey to me)
