PrayWithThePope.org

PrayWithThePope.org is a website that was launched during World Youth Day that helps you pray for the monthly intentions of the Pope by signing up for only a 5 minute block of prayer time.  By making this a worldwide function it allows for a large group of faithful from the four corners of the globe to pray for the Pope’s intentions around the clock.  The great part is that you can also setup email or text alerts to help remind you of your 5 minute prayer time.
