The Vatican has released a video to accompany the Holy Father’s prayer intention for March: For Catholics in China. Everywhere, the Church seeks to promote whatever unites us. That’s also true in China, a land of great opportunities, where the Church is called to live and grow in unity.
It has become the custom of Pope Francis to release a video message detailing his prayer intention for each month.
The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network of the Apostleship of Prayer developed “The Pope Video” initiative to assist in the worldwide dissemination of monthly intentions of the Holy Father in relation to the challenges facing humanity.
The full text of his intention is below:
“Today, the Church in China looks to the future with hope.
The Church wants Chinese Christians to be truly Christians, and to be good citizens.
They should promote the Gospel, but without engaging in proselytism, and they need to achieve the unity of the divided Catholic community.
Let us pray together that the Church in China may persevere in its faithfulness to the Gospel and grow in unity.
