Papal Reflections

Pope Francis' Prayer Intention for November 2019

As Christians we understand that sustainable peace is more about meaningful

dialogue and reconciliation than anything else. Christians recognise and acknowledge

that through dialogue with other faiths and traditions they may find God, and that in

modern times more than ever, dialogue is essential. The first step is a desire to

understand. To understand another faith opens the road to dialogue. This month Pope Francis focuses on our relationship with the Near East. We are asked to join in his prayer intention …

"... That a spirit of dialogue, encounter, and reconciliation emerge in the Near East, where diverse religious communities share their lives together."

Each month the Pope entrusts prayer intentions to his Worldwide Prayer Network, the Apostleship of Prayer. These intentions express his great concern for humanity and the mission of the Church. His monthly prayer intention (one month is universal and the next month is for evangelization) is a global call to transform our prayer into “concrete gestures” of service. It is a monthly action plan mobilizing us to work together to build a more human and caring world.
