Every year, the Holy Father asks for our prayers for a specific intention each month. You are invited to answer the Pope's request and to join with many people worldwide in praying for this intention each month. From time to time, the Holy Father may add a second prayer intention related to current events or urgent needs, like disaster relief. The second prayer request will help mobilize prayer and action related to the urgent situation.
February's prayer intention is for women who are victims of violence.
January's prayer intention: At the Service of Human Fraternity
The first International Day of Human Fraternity will be celebrated on 4 February 2021.
