ROME, FEB. 28, 2007 (Zenit.org).- During the month of March, Benedict XVI will pray especially "that the Word of God may be ever more listened to, contemplated, loved and lived."



The Apostolate of Prayer announced the general and missionary prayer intentions chosen by the Holy Father.

The Pope's general prayer intention for March is related to the theme he chose for the October 2008 synod of bishops: "The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church."

The missionary prayer intention for March is: "That the training of catechists, organizers and lay people, committed in the service of the Gospel, may be the constant concern of those responsible for the young Churches."
