September - the Month of Our Lady of Sorrows

Pope's intentions for September 2015:

 The Holy Father's universal prayer intention for September is: “That opportunities for education and employment may increase for all young people”. 
His intention for evangelisation is: “That catechists may give witness by living in a way consistent with the faith they proclaim”.
