A Pair of Papal Intentions for November
VATICAN CITY, OCT. 31, 2003 (Zenit.org).- John Paul II in November will pray for two intentions: that Western Christians grow in their knowledge of the Eastern Churches, and that the American Missionary Congress prove fruitful.
Specifically, the Pope's prayer intention is: "That the Christians of the West may constantly increase their knowledge and appreciation of the spirituality and liturgical traditions of the Eastern Churches."
His missionary intention is: "That the Church in America, celebrating the 2nd American Missionary Congress in Guatemala, may be inspired to more generous evangelizing activity even beyond her own frontiers."
The leadership of the Apostleship of Prayer explained that the purpose of these intentions is, in part, to encourage Catholics worldwide to "feel with the Church," as the intentions "are windows open to current problems of the world."
