General Intercessions the past couple of weeks?

Last week general intercessions included praying that we’d have enough priests to go around.

This week general intercessions included that all would accept the
Instruction concerning the criteria of vocational discernment regarding persons with homosexual tendencies, considering their admission to seminary and to Holy Orders
We also prayed that homosexuals would live chaste lives in accordance to God’s laws.

Has anyone else heard general intercessions include these prayers?
