Papal Intention Focuses on Saints

VATICAN CITY, OCT. 31, 2008 ( Benedict XVI is praying this month that the saints may become role models for Christians in their imitation of Christ.

The Apostleship of Prayer announced the general intention chosen by the Pope: "That the testimony of love offered by the Saints may fortify Christians in their devotion to God and their neighbor, imitating Christ who came to serve and not to be served."

The Holy Father also chooses an apostolic intention for each month. In November, he will pray that "the Christian communities of Asia, contemplating the face of Christ, may know how to find the most suitable ways to announce him, in full faithfulness to the Gospel, to the peoples of that vast continent so rich in culture and ancient forms of spirituality."
