Advertisment

VATICAN CITY, MAY 3, 2006 (Zenit) - Benedict XVI is praying this month in a special way that the Church contribute to peace and justice, and that human life be respected from conception to its natural end.

The Apostleship of Prayer announced the general and missionary prayer intentions chosen by the Pope for the month of May.

The Holy Father, along with thousands of faithful worldwide, offers his prayers and sacrifices for the intentions.

The general intention states: "That the abundance of the gifts the Holy Spirit bestows on the Church may contribute to the growth of peace and justice in the world."

Benedict XVI's missionary intention is that "in the mission countries those responsible for the public institutions may, with suitable laws, promote and defend human life from its conception to its natural termination."
