NOVEMBER: We pray that the progress of robotics and artificial intelligence may always serve humankind.
DECEMBER: We pray that our personal relationship with Jesus Christ be nourished by the Word of God and a life of prayer.
The one who prays is never alone. In fact, Jesus welcomes us in His prayer so that we might pray in Him and through Him. This is the work of the Holy Spirit. The Gospel invites us to pray to the Father in Jesus’s name.
"Faith working through love" (Gal 5:6) is the shining lamp with which we can pass through the night beyond death and reach the great feast of life.
All of us are able to give without expecting anything in return, to do good to others without demanding that they treat us well in return. As Jesus told his disciples: “Without cost you have received, without cost you are to give” (Mt 10:8).
Prayer for the deceased, raised in the trust that they dwell with God, extends its benefits to us too: it educates us in a true vision of life; it opens us up to true freedom, disposing us to the continuous search for eternal goods.
OF THE HOLY FATHER
