Share this Entry

Pope Francis’ prayer intention for the month of June 2018 is “that social networks may work towards that inclusiveness which respects others for their differences.”
The Pope’s worldwide prayer network published — on June 5, 2018 –, the Pope’s Video in which he illustrates this intention.
The Internet is a gift of God, but it is also a great responsibility,” says the Pontiff.
“Communication technology, its places, its instruments have brought with it a lengthening of horizons, a widening, for so many people.”
It can offer immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity.
The Holy Father invites for a humanizing of such networks.
“May the digital network not be a place of alienation. May it be a concrete place, a place rich in humanity.”
Pope Francis, “Let us pray together that social networks may work towards that inclusiveness which respects others for their differences.”
