Pope Francis Prayer Intentions for October 2016

When we desire to obtain indulgences we are often asked to pray for the Holy Father’s intentions.

Pope Francis’ prayer intentions for October

The Holy Father’s universal prayer intention for October is: “That journalists, in carrying out their work, may always be motivated by respect for truth and a strong sense of ethics”.

His intention for evangelisation is: “That World Mission Day may renew within all Christian communities the joy of the Gospel and the responsibility to announce it”.

    LOL

    I’m wondering if maybe on the plane Pope Francis travels on, they should designate a Door of Mercy. On the inside of the plane there should be a big sign with this written on it:

    . . . Make it mandatory reading for all journalists after take off and just prior to each air presser. Tell any journalists who don’t feel they can comply, that they have the option of going through the designated Door of Mercy to increase their faith – then , offer them a parachute.
