Pope to Pray for Vocations

VATICAN CITY, APRIL 30, 2009 ( Benedict XVI will be praying in May that the faithful become responsible promoters of vocations.

The Apostleship of Prayer announced this general intention chosen by the Pope: "That the laity and the Christian communities may be responsible promoters of priestly and religious vocations."

The Holy Father also chooses an apostolic intention for each month. In May he will pray: "That the recently founded Catholic Churches, grateful to the Lord for the gift of faith, may be ready to share in the universal mission of the Church, offering their availability to preach the Gospel throughout the world."
