Pope's prayer intention for February

Pope Francis’ prayer intention for February is Comfort for the Afflicted: That all those who are afflicted, especially the poor, refugees, and marginalized, may find welcome and comfort in our communities.

The text of the video reads as follows:


Welcome the Needy

We live in cities that throw up skyscrapers and shopping centres and strike big real estate deals … but they abandon a part of themselves to marginal settlements on the periphery (Address of Pope Francis to participants in the World Meeting of Popular Movements, Old Synod Hall, Tuesday, 28 October 2014).

The result of this situation is that great sections of the population are excluded and marginalized: without a job, without options, without a way out (Evangelii Gaudium: Apostolic Exhortation The Joy of the Gospel, 53).

Don’t abandon them. Pray with me for all those who are afflicted, especially the poor, refugees, and marginalized, may find welcome and comfort in our communities (Prayer Intention of the Holy Father entrusted to the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer), February 2017.
