Pope's Prayer Intentions for 2022

The Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network, which traces it origins to 1844, has issued the monthly prayer intentions of the Holy Father for 2022. In January, we are asked to pray for all those suffering from religious discrimination and persecution.

Other intentions during the year include a Christian response to bioethical challenges, for families, small businesses, for a Church open to everyone, and for children who suffer.

The Prayer Network is a pontifical work 
with the mission of mobilizing Catholics through prayer and action, in the face of the challenges confronting humanity and the mission of the Church.

According to Vatican News, “These challenges are addressed in the form of prayer intentions entrusted by the Pope to the entire Church. Its mission is inscribed in the dynamic of the Heart of Jesus: a mission of compassion for the world.”

The complete list of intentions for each month is here.
