Starting in January 2021, the intentions specially selected by Bishop Wall for each month of the year are intended to give Catholics in the Diocese of Gallup a specific focus for prayer and consideration. By uniting in prayer for a common cause, Catholics may be assured that they are joined in their spiritual efforts by their pastors, fellow parishioners, and their bishop.

If you’re seeking specific intentions for your prayers this year, here are Bishop Wall’s suggestions!

January: Renewal of Spirit
That peoples throughout the world find peace and healing in the new year.

February: Christian Love
For couples and spouses to love one another as Christ calls us to love: with selflessness and devotion.

March: Repentance
That Catholics seek repentance and a conversion of heart in this holy season of Lent, aligning themselves fully to the will of God.

April: Survivors of Abuse
That survivors of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse find healing through Christ, and that perpetrators of abuse repent and receive justice.

May: Mothers
For mothers, who, through imitation of Mary, the Blessed Mother, may be a source of love and devotion for their families.

June: Fathers
For fathers, that, like St. Joseph, they may serve as protectors and models of virtue for their families.

July: Religious Freedom 
That politicians and civic leaders will uphold and protect the freedom of all peoples to freely worship God and follow His commandments.

August: Youth
For children and students, that, like the children in the Gospel who embrace Christ, they will trust wholly in the goodness and love of God.

September: The Elderly
For elders, that their human dignity and worth will not be forgotten, but embraced and protected.

October: Indigenous Societies
That Native American communities will be respected as they continue to seek sovereign rights and preservation of culture.

November: Poor Souls in Purgatory
For the souls in Purgatory, that they may soon be freed from their period of purification and be joined with God in Heaven.

December: Spirit of Joy
That people throughout the world find joy in the birth of Christ, who humbled Himself so that all might be saved.
