31 DECEMBER 2011. May the peace of Christ, the Prince of Peace, through the Holy and Divine Will reigning in each of us, be with each of us now and throughout 2012, relying always on the love and intercession of our Lady, most chaste spouse of the Holy Spirit and the vessel of our Salvation, Jesus Christ.
"Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus," our hope in the new year.
Offered in solidarity with our Holy Father Pope Francis, his prayer intention for March 2017:
Support for Persecuted Christians.That persecuted Christians may be supported by the prayers and material help of the whole Church.
