The Pope’s Prayer Network – Intentions for May 2016


May Prayer Intentions


Morning offering

“Dear Jesus, I offer you all the prayers and works, joys and sufferings of the day ahead, together with the intercession of Mary our mother.  I offer them all for the intentions of your heart, united with every holy Mass offered around the world today.  I offer my prayers especially for the Pope’s Intentions for this month”.


Your Daily Offering

Mary, our model and mother,

by your obedience and patience you have taught us

how to be true children of God.

Please help us by your powerful assistance

to overcome all our weaknesses,

and to fulfil perfectly our tasks throughout this day.


With Mary, the mother of our Lord and of the

Church, I pray for this month’s intentions as proposed

by the Holy Father


Universal Intention

Respect for Women: That in every country of the world, women may be honoured and respected and that their essential contribution to society may be highly esteemed. 


Evangelisation Intention

Holy Rosary: That families, communities, and groups may pray the Holy Rosary for evangelisation and peace.
