Pope's October prayer intention: #Pray For The Church

Thursday, October 11, 2018

Pope Francis on Tuesday released a video message accompanying his prayer intention for October, which this month is "For the Church".

In his prayer intention for the month of October, Pope Francis says: "I renew the invitation to everyone to pray the Rosary every day in October, ending with the antiphon 'We fly to thy patronage' and the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, to repel the attacks of the Devil who wants to divide the Church."

It has become the custom of Pope Francis to release a video message detailing his prayer intention for each month.

The full text of his intention is below:

The Devil presents himself with great power.

He brings you gifts.

But you don't know what's inside.

I renew the invitation to everyone to pray the Rosary every day in October, ending with the antiphon "We fly to thy patronage" and the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, to repel the attacks of the Devil who wants to divide the Church.
