Holy Father prays for poverty-stricken countries, regions of violence

.- Pope Benedict XVI will offer his prayers this month for the poor not to be forgotten in the economic crisis as well as for Christians living in the violence-scarred regions of the world.

Today it was announced that the Holy Father’s general prayer intention for the month of June is: "That international attention towards the poorer countries may give rise to more concrete help, in particular to relieve them of the crushing burden of foreign debt."

His mission intention will be that “the particular Churches operating in regions marked by violence may be sustained by the love and concrete closeness of all the Catholics in the world."
