Pope Francis' Prayer Intentions for March

Universal Intention

Families in Difficulty : That families in need may receive the necessary support and that children may grow up in healthy and peaceful environments.

Evangelization Intention

Persecuted Christians : That those Christians who, on account of their faith, are discriminated against or are being persecuted, may remain strong and faithful to the Gospel, thanks to the incessant prayer of the Church.

Daily Offering Prayer

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world. I offer them for all the intentions of Your Sacred Heart: the salvation of souls, reparation for sin, and the reunion of all Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and of all Apostles of Prayer, and in particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.


Journey through Scripture Series: "The Bible and Prayer"

(English only)

This seven-week Bible study class, written and supported by the team from the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, is based on the book Prayer Works! Getting a Grip on Catholic Spirituality by Matthew Leonard. This series explores the human quest for God, unveiling the true nature of prayer. It looks at the prayer lives of the towering figures of salvation history in both the Old and New Testaments showing the different forms our communication with God can take. It also examines the three types or modes of prayer every Catholic is called to engage in: vocal prayer, meditation, and contemplation. The study examines the prayer life of Jesus Christ, the ultimate example of how to commune with our Father. Workbook provided. Visit www.StPaulCenter.com to learn more. Open to ages 15 and up. Limited seating. Matthew Leonard's book will be pre-ordered and must be paid for at the time of registration. Class not available in Spanish at this time.

Evening classes begin Sunday, Apr. 10, 7 p.m.; Morning classes begin Tuesday, Apr. 12 at 10 a.m. Contact Charolette J. (CJ) Garcia-Aboytes at 210-843-1198 for more info.
