This month Cardinal John Dew will be praying at St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican for those who have requested his prayers.
Cardinal Dew will be attending the closing Mass for the Jubilee Year of Mercy which will be celebrated by Pope Francis, and will have with him a special book containing the names of those who have taken part in Bible Society’s Poverty and Justice Bible campaign.
This is the second time Cardinal Dew has personally prayed for Kiwis in Rome. Last year he prayed specifically for those who had requested prayer at his titular church – Sant’Ippolito, where he is Cardinal-Priest.
The Bible Society of New Zealand has been collecting names and prayer requests throughout 2016.
And there is still time to participate. To submit a prayer request for Cardinal John Dew please visit www.povertyandjustice.nz and fill out the form.
