VATICAN CITY, APRIL 2, 2007 ( During the month of April, Benedict XVI will pray that every Christian may answer the call to sanctity.

The Holy Father will ask that every Christian may answer enthusiastically and faithfully the universal call to sanctity, allowing himself to be enlightened and guided by the Holy Spirit.

The Apostleship of Prayer announced the intentions chosen by the Pope.

The Pontiff also prays for an apostolic intention each month. For April, his intention is: "That the number of priestly and religious vocations may grow in North America and the countries of the Pacific Ocean, in order to give an adequate answer to the pastoral and missionary needs of those populations."
