     The Pope’s Intentions for November

    Universal:   That all who suffer loneliness may experience the closeness of God and the support of others.

    For Evangelisation:  That young seminarians and religious may have wise and well-formed mentors.

     

    Prayer for the Dead

    God of infinite mercy, we entrust to your immense goodness all those who have left this world for eternity, where you await all humanity, redeemed by the precious blood of Christ Your Son, who died to save us from our sins.

    Look not Lord, at our poverty, misery and human weaknesses when we present ourselves before you to be judged in happiness or condemned.

    Gaze upon us with pity, born of your tender heart and help us to walk the path of purification. May none of your children be lost to the eternal fires of hell, where repentance is no more.

    We entrust to you Lord, the souls of our beloved departed, of those who died without the comfort of the Sacraments or who did not have opportunity to repent, not even at the end of their life.

    May no one fear the encounter with You at the end of their earthly pilgrimage, in the hope of being welcomed within the embrace of your infinite mercy. May sister death find us in prayerful vigilance, and full of all the good we have done during our existance, be it long or short.

    Lord may nothing distance us from you on this earth. May everything and everyone support us in our ardent hope to serenely and eternally rest in you.   Amen.

     (Pope Francis on the 2nd November 2014)
