Pope Releases Video to Accompany February Prayer Intention

‘For a generous welcome of the victims of human trafficking, of enforced prostitution, and of violence’

Pope Francis on February 7, 2019, released a video to accompany his February 2019 prayer intention: For a generous welcome of the victims of human trafficking, of enforced prostitution, and of violence.

Pope Francis’ prayer intention is promoted throughout the world by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network. 

The full text of the video:

Although we try to ignore it, slavery is not something from other times.

Faced with this tragic reality, no one can wash their hands of it without being, in

some way, an accomplice to this crime against humanity.

We cannot ignore the fact that there is as much slavery in the world today as

there was before, or perhaps more.

Let us pray for a generous welcome of the victims of human trafficking, of

enforced prostitution, and of violence.
