THE YEAR FOR CLARITY OF VISION

Lord, 
Help me to see things more clearly, 
to see those in need and those who suffer.

Help me to see you and your plan for my life 
as I journey through this new year.

And help me to see that I am exactly 
where I am supposed to be to learn 
and do your work in the world.
Amen


It's 2020 Welcome Back!!

Pope's Worldwide Prayer NetworkEvery year, the faithful from around the world suggest papal prayer intentions in each country to their national office, which selects some of them and sends those to the international office of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network in Vatican City. Through prayerful discernment the international office selects a large number of them and submits them to the Pope to help his discernment. After his prayer and discernment he entrusts to the International Director of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network the official set of monthly prayer intentions, which are then translated into the major world languages and published in print and digital formats. 
Here are our official prayer intentions for 2020.
