Just a reminder to check out the Aid to the Church in Need website for prayers for HH Papa Benedict's visit to the UK. You can access it here. Zenit are also carrying the story, which was the reminder for me today! You can read their story here. They remind us:
Quite right, Mr Kyrke-Smith. Quite right.
The agency is inviting people to have Masses said for the intentions of the Pope. Those who request these Mass intentions will have their names written in a commemorative book, which will be presented to the Pontiff on his visit.
Stipends for these Masses will be used by the aid agency to help priests in countries experiencing persecution or other forms of suffering.
Neville Kyrke-Smith, the national director of the U.K. branch of Aid to the Church in Need, said, "At this moment, more than ever, our Holy Father and all priests need our prayers and support."
