You will probably have noticed that we have reduced the number of individual names of members and friends prayed for, as numbers increase and interest in the Cycle of Prayer becomes more widespread. Instead we have now mentioned the countries where our members and friends are located.
We have also changed the day for praying for the Ordinariates worldwide to Sunday, which seems more appropriate.
(Special days are therefore:
- Sunday: Ordinariates
- Thursday: Ordinariate Expats members and friends
- Friday: Ordinariate Religious
- Saturday: Ecumenical Partners
The intentions on Monday to Wednesday are more mixed.
The priests among our members and friends who have promised to offer mass on a particular day are remembered on that day too).
For these reasons and also because we try to have topical intentions where possible, e.g. Christmas in this coming Cycle or the intention for Ordinariate groups without pastors, it is not possible to provide a Cycle of Prayer which is identical from month to month.
We hope that you appreciate this way of proceeding, and we would welcome any comments.
