Pope’s December Intentions

Each year, the Holy Father asks for our prayers for specific intentions each month, one for some general worldwide need, and another for a specific need related to evangelization. You are invited to answer the Holy Father's request and to join with many people worldwide in praying for these intentions each month. 

Universal: That the scandal of child soldiers may be eliminated the world over. 

Evangelization: That the peoples of Europe may rediscover the beauty, goodness and truth of the Gospel which give joy and hope to life.
