Find out how to join the Holy Father in praying each month for the needs of the world

VATICAN CITY — Beginning Wednesday, January 6, Pope Francis will share his monthly prayer intentions for the needs of the Church and the world via video message, thanks to a new initiative launched by the worldwide Apostleship of Prayer.

This month the Apostleship of Prayer, set up in 1844 by a group of Jesuit seminarians in France, is launching a new international website and app aimed at facilitating collaboration and sharing of resources between teams from the pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network.

Click To Pray is an App launched in November 2014 by the Apostleship of Prayer in Portugal to help young people pray. In August 2015, the app was presented to Pope Francis during a private audience, and the latest version will go live in January in English, Spanish, Portuguese and French.

The production of a video with Pope Francis sharing his monthly prayer intentions has been arranged in collaboration with the Vatican Television Centre.

The pope will deliver his message in Spanish, with subtitles in 10 languages. The video will be available on YouTube as well as on social media sites including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, encouraging people all over the world to pray with the pope each month.

The first video will feature the pope’s prayer intention for January: “That sincere dialogue among men and women of different faiths may produce the fruits of peace and justice.”
