Care for creation and Christian unity highlight Pope Benedict’s prayer intentions for January

January 4, 2011
The Papal intentions reported on the Tuesday, January 4th edition of Perspectives were the incorrect intentions for this month.  Please see the correct intentions for January 2011 below:
Every January we celebrate the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity.  The week begins on January 18th, and extends to January 25th, the feast of the conversion of St. Paul.  It's appropriate then that Pope Benedict XVI's mission intention for this month is:
That Christians may attain full unity, witnessing to all the universal fatherhood of God.
His general intention for January relates to care for creation:
That the riches of the created world may be preserved, valued, and made available as God’s precious gift to all.
