The Pope’s Prayer Network – Intentions for October 2016


October 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

Father, we honour the heart, of your son broken by man’s cruelty, 

yet symbol of love’s triumph, pledge of all that man is called to be. 

Teach us to see Christ in the lives we touch, to offer him living

worship by love-filled service to our brothers and sisters.  


I pray with Mary and the whole Church for the

Pope’s intentions this month:


Universal Intention

Journalists: That journalists, in carrying out their work, may always be motivated by respect for truth and a strong sense of ethics.  


Evangelisation Intention

World Mission Day: That World Mission Day may renew within all Christian communities the joy of the Gospel and the responsibility to announce it.
