Pope Benedict’s Prayer Intentions for August

July 31, 2008
bxvi-bress.jpgAs Pope Benedict enjoys the charming natural surroundings in Bressanone, one of his prayer intentions for August appropriately calls to mind seeing the beauty of God in Creation.
Here are the Holy Father's intentions for the month:
General Intention:
That the human family may know how to respect God's design for the world and thus become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us.
Mission intention:
That the answer of the entire people of God to the common vocation to sanctity and mission may be promoted and fostered, with careful discernment of the charisms and a constant commitment to spiritual and cultural formation.
