February's Prayer Intention

Benedict's general prayer intention for February will focus on the well-being of the mentally handicapped.

The Apostleship of Prayer announced the general intention chosen by the Pope:

"That the mentally handicapped may not be marginalized, but respected and lovingly helped to live in a way worthy of their physical and social condition."

The Holy Father also chooses an apostolic intention for each month. In February he will pray:

"That the institutes of consecrated life, which are so flourishing in mission countries, may rediscover the missionary dimension and, faithful to the radical choice of evangelical counsels, be generous in bearing witness to and announcing Christ to the ends of the earth."

Thanks to His Holiness for including three of my family in his prayer intentions for February.There is so much to thank God for in His provision to the world of this wise and holy Shepherd...But I wasn't expecting this prayer intention, which feels like a personal gift.
