Pope Benedict: Study the Eastern Catholic Churches

Pope's November Intention: That Whole Church Will Esteem This "Spiritual Treasure"

VATICAN CITY, NOV. 3, 2011 thanks to Zenit.org

Pope Benedict XVI is praying this month for an increase in knowledge of and esteem for the Eastern Catholic Churches. The Apostleship of Prayer announced the intentions chosen by the Pope for this month.

His general intention is "that the Eastern Catholic Churches and their venerable traditions may be known and esteemed as a spiritual treasure for the whole Church."

The Eastern Catholic Churches are in full communion with Rome. They originate in Eastern Europe, Asia or Africa and have their own liturgical and legal systems. The national or ethnic character of their regions of origin identifies these Churches. There are 22 Eastern Catholic Churches, and their members number worldwide between 16 million and 17 million.
