WATCH: The Pope’s prayer intention for September

Aleteia - published on 09/05/16

This month the Pope asks for help in changing the crisis humanity is experiencing into an opportunity

VATICAN CITY — In his “most collective” prayer intention this year, Pope Francis has expressed his concern over a world crisis that is “not only economic and financial, but is also ecological, educational, moral, and human.”

The Pope’s September prayer intention video, produced by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, seeks to raise awareness about situations that touch our daily lives at work, in community life, among families, and other areas of daily life.

The crises that arise in these spheres can become opportunities for change, Pope Francis says. “When we talk about crisis, we talk about dangers, but also opportunities. What is the opportunity? That of solidarity.”

“Come, help me,” he asks, “that each may contribute to the common good and to the building of a society that places the human person at the center.”

About the Pope Video

The Pope Video is a global initiative developed by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer) to disseminate the monthly intentions of the Holy Father concerning the challenges facing humanity. The videos seek to unite people in praying with Pope Francis for those challenges. The Project has the support of the Vatican Television Center (CTV), sole owner of the rights.
