New Video Series Highlights Pope's Monthly Prayer Intentions

January 7, 2016

Pope Francis is inviting the world to unite in prayer for his monthly intentions through a new initiative with the Apostleship of Prayer, “the Pope’s prayer group.”

AOP carries the Pope’s monthly prayer intentions on its websites and social media, but the Jesuit prayer ministry began a new monthly video series this week.

You can view the video at ApostleshipofPrayer.org and on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/thepopevideo  (English) and https://www.facebook.com/elvideodelpapa (Spanish).

Each video will focus on a global challenge. This month’s topic is interreligious dialogue. The project is expected to reach thirty-million people in ten languages. “In a world where everything pushes towards fragmentation, opposition, and division, it is more necessary than ever that members of different religions and all peace-loving people mobilize in common cause,” said Rev. Frédéric Fornos, S.J., managing director of the international Apostleship of Prayer. “Each month, Pope Francis asks people everywhere to pray for a challenge that concerns all humanity. Religions must show that they can pray and work together for peace, brotherhood, and solidarity to address the common challenges facing humanity.”
