POPE FRANCIS’S PRAYER INTENTION FOR OCTOBER 2020:
The Laity’s Mission in the Church
We pray that by the virtue of baptism, the laity, especially women, may participate more in areas of responsibility in the Church.
Prayer for the month of October
O Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Christ and Mother of the Church, With joy and wonder we seek to make our own your Magnificat, joining you in your hymn of thankfulness and love.
With you we give thanks to God, “whose mercy is from generation to generation”, for the exalted vocation and the many forms of mission entrusted to the lay faithful.
God has called each of them by name to live his own communion of love and holiness and to be one in the great family of God’s children. He has sent them forth to shine with the light of Christ and to communicate the fire of the Spirit in every part of society through their life inspired by the gospel.
You who were gathered in prayer with the Apostles in the Cenacle, awaiting the coming of the Spirit at Pentecost, implore his renewed outpouring on all the faithful, men and women alike, so that they might more fully respond to their vocation and mission, as branches engrafted to the true vine, called to bear much fruit for the life of the world.
O Virgin Mother, guide and sustain us so that we might always live as true sons and daughters of the Church of your Son. Enable us to do our part in helping to establish on earth the civilization of truth and love, as God wills it, for his glory. Amen
Fr. Joe Laramie, SJ, Regional Director of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (USA & Canada), reflects on prayer and growing closer to Jesus Christ.

Everyone is so busy, and yet inescapably hungering for meaning and fulfilment in their lives.
“DGEMS” has the main purpose of helping our subscribers discover more clearly and experience more deeply these innate human longings. The reflections on the Daily Gospels are deliberately succinct and spiritually challenging. They are also meant to inspire and illuminate our daily experiences through God’s Word.
1st April 2020

We hope and pray that you have been enriched in your faith through this ministry.
May you continue to abide in Jesus’ Words of Wisdom, “Make My Word your home and you will indeed by My disciple.”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
