Pope’s January prayer intention: May the Lord give us the grace to live in full fellowship
with our brothers and sisters of other religions, praying for one another, open to all.
2021 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity (January 18-25) Theme The international resources for 2021 Week of
Prayer for Christian Unity have been prepared by the Monastic Community of Grandchamp in Switzerland, a group of
religious sisters from different church traditions brought together by a common vocation of prayer, community life and
hospitality and by their commitment to Christian unity.
The 2021 theme – Abide in my love and you shall bear much fruit (John 15:5-9) – calls us to pray and to work for
reconciliation and unity in the church, with our human family, and with all of creation. Drawing on the Gospel image of
vine and branches, it invites us to nourish unity with God and with one another through contemplative silence, prayer, and
common action. Grafted into Christ the vine as many diverse branches, may we bear rich fruit and create new ways of living,
with respect for and communion with all of creation. Source

The February Helping Others collection is for the Development and Peace.

Pope’s February prayer intention: We pray for women who are victims of violence, that
they may be protected by society and have their sufferings considered and heeded.
World Day for Consecrated Life February 2 In 1997, Pope Saint John Paul II instituted a day of prayer for women and men
in consecrated life. This celebration is attached to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on February 2nd. This Feast is also
known as Candlemas Day; the day on which candles are blessed symbolizing Christ who is the light of the world. So too, those
in consecrated life are called to reflect the light of Jesus Christ to all peoples. The celebration of World Day for Consecrated Life
is transferred to the following Sunday in order to highlight the gift of consecrated persons for the whole Church.
World Day for Consecrated Life is celebrated on February 2nd however, it is observed in parishes on the Sunday after February
2nd. In 2021, this day will be celebrated in parishes February 6-7, 2021.
"This then is the consecrated life: praise which gives joy to God’s people, prophetic vision that reveals what counts. Consecrated
life is not about survival, it is not about preparing ourselves for ars bene moriendi: this is the temptation of our days, in the face
of declining vocations. No, it is not about survival, but new life. “But… there are only a few of us…” – it’s about new life. It is a
living encounter with the Lord in his people. It is a call to the faithful obedience of daily life and to the unexpected surprises from
the Spirit. It is a vision of what we need to embrace in order to experience joy: Jesus" --Pope Francis, WDCL Homily on February
2, 2019 Source
World Day of the Sick February 11 February 11 is World Day of the Sick, an observation started by Pope John Paul II as
a way for believers to offer prayers for those suffering from illnesses. The day coincides with the commemoration of Our
Lady of Lourdes. People around the world take the time to pray for the sick and for those who work very hard to alleviate
the sufferings of the sick on this day. Faith organisations mark this day especially to provide the sick with medicines, food,
and spiritual guidance. Pope John Paul II initiated the day in 1992 to encourage people to pray for those who suffer from
illness and for their caregivers. The Pope himself had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s a year before, in 1991, and it is
considered that his own illness was impetus for his designation of the day. Pope Benedict XVI also declared his decision to
resign from his post as the Pope on this day in 2013. He cited his failing health as the reason behind his decision. Source
