General prayer intention: Victimized Children. That children who are victims of abandonment or violence may find the love and protection they need.

O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary,
in union with St. Joseph, I offer You my prayers, works, joys, and
sufferings of this day in union with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
throughout the world. I offer them for all the intentions of Your Sacred
Heart: the salvation of souls, reparation for sin, and the reunion of all
Christians. I offer them for the intentions of our bishops and in
particular for those recommended by our Holy Father this month.
