In addition to a September 16th to 19th Papal trip to the United Kingdom which Pope Benedict has asked prayers for, September brings us the following papal intentions:
General Intention: The Word of God as Incentive for Social Development
That the proclamation of the Word of God may renew people's hearts, encouraging them to work toward authentic social progress.
Mission Intention: End of War
That by opening our hearts to love we may put an end to the wars and conflicts which continue to bloody our world.
