February Prayer Intentions

The month of February is dedicated to the Holy Family.

Pope Benedict's prayer intentions for this month really hit home for me, being bipolar and having several children with mood disorders we often seek the intercessions of St. Dymphna. Now, for the whole month, millions of faithful people will be praying for us.

Mentally Handicapped: That the mentally handicapped may not be marginalized, but respected and lovingly helped.

Institutes of Consecrated Life: That the Institutes of Consecrated Life in mission countries may rediscover the missionary dimension and generously proclaim Christ to the ends of the earth.
