Today, the Vatican announced the Holy Father's general prayer intention for the month of February.

The Pope prays this month "that the sick, and especially the poorest of them, may receive the care and medical treatment worthy of human beings."
The Holy See added that his mission intention for the month is, "that all missionaries, both men and women, may grow in their recognition that it is only through a fervent love for Christ that the Gospel can be transmitted in an effective and convincing way."
