September Prayer Intentions from the Pope

“Pope Benedict’s general prayer intention for September is: “That in less developed parts of the world the proclamation of the Word of God may renew people’s hearts, encouraging them to work actively toward authentic social progress”.

His mission intention is: “That by opening our hearts to love we may put an end to the numerous wars and conflicts which continue to bloody our world”.”-“Benedict XVI’s Prayer Intentions for September”, EWTN

This concise statement sums up what Pope Benedict thinks would make the world a better place during the month of September. While these things won’t happen over the course of just a month, I think it is important that everybody keep the Pope’s intention at heart. If we just think with this mentality it can start making the first move towards a better tomorrow. I was glad that EWTN took the time to post this statement made by Pope Benedict XVI.
