WATCH: The pope’s plea for prayer for persecuted Christians

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 03/02/17

The text of the pope’s remarks, asking during the month of March that people pray for persecuted Christians:

How many people are being persecuted because of their faith, forced to abandon their homes, their places of worship, their lands, their loved ones! They are persecuted and killed because they are Christians. Those who persecute them make no distinction between the religious communities to which they belong. I ask you: how many of you pray for persecuted Christians? Do it with me, that they may be supported by the prayers and material help of all the Churches and communities.

Amen.
