Those Struggling with Addiction and the Churches of Latin America highlight the Pope's November Prayer Intentions

November 1, 2010
Though today we celebrate all the many wonderful holy men and women who have gone before us, November is traditionally a month where we remember our dearly departed, the poor souls in purgatory.
We may also want to regularly call to mind the Papal intentions for this month.  Pope Benedict XVI's general prayer intention for November is:
That victims of drugs or of other dependence may, thanks to the support of the Christian community, find in the power of our saving God strength for a radical life-change.
His mission intention is:
That the Churches of Latin America may move ahead with the continent-wide mission proposed by their bishops, making it part of the universal missionary task of the People of God.
