Since the nineteenth century, popes have asked the Apostleship of Prayer to pray for specific intentions. Two prayer intentions are requested each month from the Holy Father, a general intention and a mission intention. Let us join the Apostleship of Prayer’s dedication to pray for these intentions each day. Pope Benedict XVI’s March prayer intentions are:
- For Latin American Nations: That the nations of Latin America may walk in fidelity to the Gospel and progress in justice and peace.
- For Persecuted Christians: That the Holy Spirit may give light and strength to those in many regions of the world who are persecuted and discriminated against because of the gospel.
