Pope Francis has given his prayer intentions for 2016.
At the start of the new year, Pope Francis will be praying that interreligious dialogue will produce fruits of peace.
His universal prayer intention is: “That sincere dialogue among men and women of different faiths may produce the fruits of peace and justice.”
His intention for evangelisation is: “That by means of dialogue and fraternal charity and with the grace of the Holy Spirit, Christians may overcome divisions.”
The Apostleship of Prayer announced the intentions chosen by the Pope for January 2016. The Pope Video is a global initiative developed by the Pope World Prayer Network to assist in the dissemination of monthly intentions of the Holy Father related to the challenges facing humanity.
