Pope Francis prayer intentions for October

  • Peace. That the Lord may grant peace to those parts of the world most battered by war and violence.
  • World Mission Day.  That World Mission Day may rekindle in every believer zeal for carrying the Gospel into all the world.


  • Lonely people. That all who suffer loneliness may experience the closeness of God and the support of others.
  • Mentors of seminarians and religious.  That young seminarians and religious may have wise and well-formed mentors.


  • Christmas, hope for humanity. That the birth of the Redeemer may bring peace and hope to all people of good will.
  • Parents.  That parents may be true evangelizers, passing on to their children the precious gift of faith.
