Pope Releases Video to Accompany March Prayer Intention

Recognition of the Right of Christian Communities

Pope Francis on March 5, 2019, released a video to accompany his March prayer intention: Recognition of the Right of Christian Communities.

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

The full text of the video:

It might be hard for us to believe, but there are more martyrs today than in the first centuries.

They are persecuted because they speak the truth and proclaim Jesus Christ to this society.

This happens particularly where religious freedom is not yet guaranteed.

However, it also happens in countries where, in theory, and on paper, they protect freedom and human rights.

Let us pray that Christian communities, especially those who are persecuted, feel that they are close to Christ and have their rights respected.
