Towards the end of our Step-by-Step Rosary, we always pray for the Popes intentions, but what are his intentions?
Popes come and go, but the Church bestow.
PRAYER ACCORDING TO THE POPES INTENTION
The Raccolta, ed. 1910
The Pope’s intention always includes the following objects:
i. The progress of the Faith and triumph of the Church.
ii. Peace and union among Christian Princes and Rulers.
iii. The conversion of sinners.
iv. The uprooting of heresy.
